ALIZADEH'S JACK: Files for Chapter 11, Reopens Restaurants
----------------------------------------------------------
Abe Alizadeh has sent four entities that operate his Jack in the
Box Inc. franchised restaurants to Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection.

Mark Anderson at Sacramento Business Journal reports that
Mr. Alizadeh temporarily closed 70 Jack in the Box restaurants in
Northern California on Thursday, but reopened them on Friday.  The
restaurants were reopened after Mr. Alizadeh submitted the Chpater
11 petitions., the report says, citing spokesperson Scott Rose.

According to Business Journal, the restaurants had closed while
Mr. Alizadeh tried to resolve tax issues with the state of
California.  Citing the Board of Equalization, Business Journal
says that the restaurants have struggled, as the local Jack in the
Boxes owned by Mr. Alizadeh were listed as one of the Sacramento
area's businesses with the highest delinquent taxes, at
$1.5 million.

Abe Alizadeh is a longtime Jack in the Box Inc. franchisee in
Northern California.


AMES TRUE: S&P Raises Corporate Credit Rating to 'B-'
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it raised its ratings
on Ames True Temper Inc., including its corporate credit rating to
'B-' from 'CCC+'.  The outlook is stable.  Ames had about
$332 million of reported debt as of June 27, 2009.

"The upgrade reflects the company's relatively stable operating
performance through the very challenging economic environment and
improved liquidity position through modest free cash flow
generation over the past 12 months," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Christopher Johnson.  In addition, Ames has adequate
availability under its borrowing-based revolving credit facility
(close to $50 million on a borrowing base of about $85 million as
of June 27, 2009), and S&P believes there will be adequate
availability to meet estimated working capital requirements of
more than $40 million ahead of its key selling season in the
second and third quarters of fiscal 2010 (ending Sept 30, 2010).
S&P also believe near-term debt obligations are manageable given
these factors.

The ratings on Ames reflect competitive industry dynamics and the
company's narrow product portfolio, seasonal business
characteristics, limited geographic diversification, product and
customer concentration, and a highly leveraged capital structure.

The company manufactures its products under several brand names,
such as Ames, True Temper, Ames True Temper, UnionTools, Hound
Dog, and Razor-Back, as well as a family of sub brands and
contractor-oriented brands.  The lawn and garden tools and
accessories market is competitive and fragmented, which limits
pricing flexibility.  Moreover, Ames' business is highly seasonal
and subject to unfavorable weather conditions, with more than 60%
of sales and a majority of its operating income and cash flows
occurring in the second and third quarters of the fiscal year.

The outlook is stable, reflecting adequate liquidity and
relatively stable EBITDA levels despite year-to-date declines
in sales volumes.  S&P believes the company will maintain adequate
liquidity, including revolver availability in excess of
$30 million over the next year, and will continue to generate
positive free cash flows.  S&P would consider an outlook revision
to positive if sales declines abate in fiscal 2010 and the company
maintains EBITDA margins of about 12%, resulting in year-over-year
EBITDA growth and debt leverage at 7.5x or less.  S&P would
consider an outlook revision to negative if operating performance
weakens significantly in fiscal 2010 and materially pressures
liquidity.


ANTHRACITE CAPITAL: Receives Non-Compliance Notice from NYSE
------------------------------------------------------------
Anthracite Capital, Inc., on September 15, 2009, was notified by
the New York Stock Exchange, Inc., that the average per share
price of its common stock was below the NYSE's continued listing
standard relating to minimum average share price.  Rule 802.01C of
the NYSE's Listed Company Manual requires that the average closing
price of a company's common stock be no less than $1.00 per share
over a consecutive 30 trading-day period.

Under the applicable rules and regulations of the NYSE, the
Company has 10 business days from the receipt of the notice to
notify the NYSE of its intent to cure the Price Condition
deficiency.  The Company intends to cure the Price Condition
deficiency by effecting a reverse stock split, subject to
stockholder approval.

Under the applicable rules and regulations of the NYSE, the
Company has six months from the date of the notice to cure the
Price Condition deficiency unless the Company determines that it
is necessary to take an action that requires stockholder approval.
Since the reverse stock split will require stockholder approval,
the notice provides that the Company must obtain stockholder
approval by no later than its next annual meeting (scheduled on
May 18, 2010) and must implement the reverse stock split promptly
thereafter.  If the Company has not cured the Price Condition
deficiency by that date, its common stock will be subject to
suspension and delisting by the NYSE.  The Price Condition
deficiency will be deemed cured if the Company's common stock
price then promptly exceeds $1.00 per share and remains above
$1.00 for the following 30 trading days.

The ratio of the reverse stock split will be determined based on
the facts and circumstances at a later date.

The Company's common stock will continue to be listed on the NYSE
under the symbol "AHR" during this interim cure period, but will
be assigned a ".BC" indicator by the NYSE to signify that the
Company is not currently in compliance with the NYSE's
quantitative continued listing standards.  The Company's continued
listing during this interim cure period is also subject to the
Company's compliance with other NYSE requirements and the NYSE's
right to reevaluate continued listing determinations, including if
the Company's common stock trades at levels viewed to be
abnormally low over a sustained period of time.  Although the
Company intends to cure the Price Condition deficiency and to
return to compliance with the NYSE continued listing requirements,
there can be no assurance that it will be able to do so.

As reported by Troubled Company Reporter on September 4, 2009,
Anthracite Capital did not make an interest payment due
September 1, 2009, on its outstanding $51,049,000 11.75%
Convertible Senior Notes due 2027.  Under the indenture governing
these notes, the failure to make an interest payment is subject to
a 30-day cure period before constituting an event of default.

On August 17, 2009, as reported by the TCR, Anthracite Capital
issued 5,000,000 shares of its common stock, par value $0.001 per
share, in exchange for $15,000,000 aggregate principal amount of
its 11.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2027 with a holder of the
notes pursuant to an exchange agreement entered into on August 14
with that holder.

On August 13, the Company agreed to issue 915,000 shares of its
common stock in exchange for $3,000,000 aggregate principal amount
of its 11.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2027 with another
holder of the notes pursuant to an exchange agreement with the
holder.  The exchange was expected to settle on August 18.

In each of the transactions, the shares of the Company's common
stock were or are expected to be issued in reliance upon the
exemption set forth in Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of
1933 for securities exchanged by the issuer and an existing
security holder where no commission or other remuneration is paid
or given directly or indirectly by the issuer for soliciting such
exchange.

                     Going Concern Doubt

After auditing the Company's 2008 report on Form 10-K, the
Company's independent registered public accounting firm issued an
opinion saying that the uncertainty relating to the outcome of the
Company's ongoing negotiations with its lenders have raised
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.  The Company obtained agreements from its secured
credit facility lenders on March 17, 2009, that the going concern
reference in the independent registered public accounting firm's
opinion to the consolidated financial statements was waived.

ARVINMERITOR INC: Closes Sale of Wheels Business to Iochpe-Maxion
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ArvinMeritor, Inc., completed the sale of its Wheels business --
formerly a division of the company's Light Vehicle Systems segment
-- to Iochpe-Maxion S.A., a Brazilian producer of wheels and
frames for commercial vehicles, railway freight cars and castings,
for approximately $180 million.

The Company expects to use the net proceeds of $169 million from
the sale to reduce outstanding balances on its revolving credit
facility in advance of its fourth fiscal quarter end.  The company
reiterated that it expects to remain in compliance with its
financial covenant in the fourth quarter.

"We are pleased to have completed this transaction, which
represents another step forward in our transformation to becoming
a global commercial vehicle and industrial company with a focus on
expanding our leadership position in both the on- and off-highway

using the proceeds from this sale to further strengthen our
balance sheet and to invest in areas that will help us grow our
core business and deliver value to our shareholders. We would like
to thank the entire Wheels team for their dedication and hard work
over many years and wish them much success in the future."

ASARCO LLC: Asks Court to Drop Moreno's $1 Million Claim
--------------------------------------------------------
ASARCO LLC asks the Court to disallow and expunge Claim No. 10334
asserted by Veronica Moreno for $1,000,000.

Ms. Moreno was hired by ASARCO as a laborer at its Mission
Complex.  She took a leave of absence beginning March 10, 2000,
and did not return to work.  Ms. Moreno's employment with ASARCO
was terminated as of March 11, 2003, under the terms of ASARCO's
Labor Agreement, as she had been absent from work for 36 months
at that time.

Ms. Moreno filed a charge of discrimination with the United
States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Civil
Rights Division of the Arizona Attorney General's Office on
June 20, 2000, alleging sex discrimination and retaliation.  The
EEOC issued a right-to-sue letter on May 30, 2002, but Ms. Moreno
did not subsequently file a lawsuit against ASARCO.

Subsequently, on July 26, 2006, Ms. Moreno filed Claim No. 10334
against ASARCO, asserting an unsecured non-priority claim for
$1,000,000 based on alleged "harassment [she] endured while
working for ASARCO" as well as exposure to toxic substances,
largely contained in waste rock and tailings.

Robert C. Wilmoth, Esq., at Baker Botts L.L.P., in Dallas, Texas,
relates that Ms. Moreno's proof of claim form identifies these
bases for liability: long-term disability, personal injury,
retiree benefits, and wages, salaries and compensation.  He
maintains that a review of ASARCO's books and records reveals no
outstanding liability to Ms. Moreno for long-term disability,
personal injury, retiree benefits, wages, salary or compensation.
Mr. Wilmoth adds that Ms. Moreno did not submit a judgment,
settlement agreement, contract or other documents indicating that
ASARCO is liable to her under any legal theory.

Mr. Wilmoth argues that Ms. Moreno's Claim should be disallowed
because it fails to demonstrate any liability of ASARCO to Ms.
Moreno.  Moreover, he contends, the allegations underlying Ms.
Moreno's Claim are barred either because she failed to exhaust
her administrative remedies or because the statute of limitations
has run.

Accordingly, ASARCO asks the Court to disallow and expunge Claim

ASARCO LLC: CBD Lauds Appeals Court Ruling Against Land Exchange
----------------------------------------------------------------
In a major ruling on environmental and public-land law, the U.S.
Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco issued its
ruling striking down the federal government's approval of a land
exchange with mining giant Asarco, Inc.  The court ruled that the
federal Bureau of Land Management had violated various federal
laws in agreeing to trade public land with Asarco, which Asarco
wanted as part of its expansion of its massive Ray Copper Mine in
Arizona.  The court held that the agency's actions were
"arbitrary and capricious" and that the agency had not taken the
required "hard look" at the exchange's environmental impacts,
including comparing impacts to the land and resources with, vs.
without, the exchange.

The Center for Biological Diversity, Western Lands Project, and
Sierra Club had challenged the land exchange in order to
protect the important wildlife habitat in the area and in nearby
wilderness.  The lands subject to the exchange provide important
habitat for rare plants and animals including desert tortoises,
bighorn sheep, and many species of birds.  If this proposed land
exchange had been allowed to proceed, it would have essentially
gutted the White Canyon Resource Conservation Area by allowing
mining in a largely pristine place.

"At stake in today's decision were habitats for desert bighorn
sheep, endangered desert tortoise habitat, and other threatened
and endangered species," said Taylor McKinnon, public lands
campaigns director with the Center for Biological Diversity, in
Sept. 14, 2009 statement.  "This is a victory for them -- a
victory that will save lives."

The proposed exchange would have given Asarco 10,976 acres of
public lands in exchange for 7,300 acres of the company's private
holdings, and would have facilitated the expansion of Asarco's Ray
Mine, an open-pit copper mine located 65 miles east of Phoenix and
50 miles north of Tucson.  By gaining private ownership of the
land, Asarco would no longer be subject to federal planning,
reclamation, and bonding requirements designed to minimize and
mitigate the environmental impacts of hard-rock mining operations.

"This is a great win for the public's lands and the public
interest," said Don Steuter, conservation chair for the Sierra
Club's Grand Canyon (Arizona) Chapter.  "Federal land trades are
supposed to serve the public interest, but the projects are often
driven by private interests seeking access to federal land and
resources.  In this case, the public land slated for trade
contains rare perennial waters and a priority reintroduction site
for bighorn sheep."

Located on Mineral Creek, a tributary of the Gila River, the Ray
Mine has been an open-pit operation since 1948.  Environmental
contamination at Ray has been so severe that Asarco has been
cited for repeated violations of the Clean Water Act.

"The court upheld a longstanding principle of the National
Environmental Policy Act: The public has a right to an unvarnished
evaluation of the impacts of a proposal," said Chris Krupp,
Western Lands Project staff attorney.  "Here, the record shows
that the Bureau's analysis was so biased that a sister agency --
the Environmental Protection Agency -- chastised the BLM for its
one-sided review."

"The court correctly found that BLM violated numerous federal
laws, including the requirement the BLM fully review the
environmental impacts from future mining and that the land
exchange be 'in the public interest'," said Roger Flynn, an
attorney with Western Mining Action Project who represented the
groups.  "The company would use the land mostly for dumping waste
and running equipment.  It's about the worst purpose you can think
of for trading away public lands."

ASARCO LLC: Court Approves Bondholder Settlement
------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Richard Schmidt approved in its entirety the
settlement agreement among ASARCO LLC and its units; major
bondholders Harbinger Capital Partners Master Fund I, Ltd., and
CitiGroup Global Markets; and Indenture Trustees Wells Fargo Bank,
National Association, Wilmington Trust Company and Deutsche Bank
Trust Company Americas.

ASARCO LLC issued these unsecured long term bond debt prepetition:

  (1) $150 million in original principal amount of CSFB
      Corporate Debentures at 8.5% due 2025;

  (2) $100 million in original principal amount of CSFB JP
      Morgan Sec. Debentures at 7.875% due 2013;

  (3) $34.8 million in original principal amount of Lewis and
      Clark County, Montana Env. Bonds (IRB) at 5.85% due 2033;

  (4) $27.74 million in original principal amount of Nueces
      River Env. Bonds (IRB) at 5.6% due 2027;

  (5) $33.16 million in original principal amount of Lewis and
      Clark County, Montana Env. Bonds (IRB) at 5.6% due 2027;

  (6) $71.9 million in original principal amount of Gila County
      Installment Bonds at 5.55% due 2027; and

  (7) $22.2 million in original principal amount of Nueces River
      Env. Bonds (IRB) Series 1998A at 5.6% due 2018.

Harbinger Capital Partners Master Fund I, Ltd., and CitiGroup
Global Markets, Inc., together, are holders of a majority of the
Bonds.  Wilmington Trust Company, Wells Fargo Bank, National
Association, and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas are each
indenture trustees under one or more Indentures governing the
Bonds.

On behalf of all the Bondholders, the Indenture Trustees filed
over 200 proofs of claim, which assert damages for principal,
prepetition accrued interest, postpetition interest, interest on
prepetition and postpetition interest, prepayment "no-call"
damages, and prepayment premiums in connection with the Bonds,
including these claims:

  -- Wilmington filed Claim No. 18575, including Claim Nos.
     10415 and 18291 incorporated therein;

  -- Wells Fargo filed Claim No. 18576, including Claim Nos. 189
     and 18293 incorporated therein;

  -- Deutsche Bank filed:

     * Claim No. 18590, including Claim No. 10222 incorporated
       therein;

     * Claim No. 18589, including Claim No. 10219 incorporated
       therein;

     * Claim No. 18588, including Claim No. 10221 incorporated
       therein;

     * Claim No. 18587, including Claim No. 10218 incorporated
       therein;

     * Claim No. 18591, including Claim No. 10220 incorporated
       therein; and

     * certain other proofs of claim relating to the Bonds to
       which the Debtors have objected as being duplicative of
       the Deutsche Bank's claims; and

  -- Other proofs of claim relating the Bonds.

As a result of extensive negotiations and consultations with
counsel, the parties reached a settlement agreement, which
amicably resolves all matters relating to the Bondholder Claims,
and settles amounts and treatments for the Claims.

Pursuant to Sections 105, 501, and 502 of the Bankruptcy Code and
Rule 9019 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, ASARCO
LLC asks Judge Schmidt to approve its compromise and settlement
with the Bondholders in connection with the Bondholders Claims.

ASARCO submitted to the Court, through a separate notice, a copy
of the Bondholder Settlement.

The key terms of the Bondholder Settlement are:

  (a) The Bondholders will receive an allowed claim amounting to
      $447.6 million on account of the principal amounts of the
      Bonds and all accrued but unpaid prepetition interest,
      provided that the Allowed Claims will be payable pari
      passu with the Allowed General Unsecured Claims for
      principal and prepetition interest;

  (b) The Bondholders will receive Allowed Claims in the
      approximate aggregate amount of $162 million for
      postpetition interest, calculated at the non-default
      contract rate, compounded based on the dates that interest
      payments were due under the contracts; provided that the
      Allowed Claims will only be payable after all General
      Unsecured Claims for principal and prepetition interest
      have been paid in full, and the payment for postpetition
      interest will be pari passu with Allowed General Unsecured
      Claims for postpetition interest;

  (c) Holders of the Montana 2033 Bonds, Nueces 2027 Bonds,
      Montana 2027 Bonds, Gila Bonds, and Nueces 2018 Bonds will
      receive Allowed Claims in the amount specified under the
      Indenture governing the Bonds on account of prepayment
      premiums, estimated at $1,898,000, in the aggregate;
      provided that the Allowed Claims will only be payable
      after the all General Unsecured Claims for postpetition
      interest have been paid in full, and the payment will be
      pari passu with the Allowed Claims for prepayment damages
      of the holders of the 2013 Bonds and the 2025 Bonds;

  (d) Holders of the 2013 Bonds will receive Allowed Claims in
      the aggregate amount of $5 million, calculated as 5% of
      the original principal amount, for alleged prepayment
      damages.  Holders of the 2025 Bonds will receive Allowed
      Claims in the aggregate amount of $15 million, calculated
      as 10% of the original principal amount, for alleged
      prepayment damages.  The Allowed Claims will be payable
      after Allowed General Unsecured Claims for postpetition
      interest have been paid in full, and the payments will be
      pari passu with the Allowed Claims of the holders of the
      Montana 2033 Bonds, the Nueces 2027 Bonds, the Montana
      2027 Bonds, the Nueces 2018 Bonds and the Gila Bonds;

  (e) In recognition of the contribution of the Harbinger's plan
      of reorganization, the Debtors will support an
      administrative expense claim by the Majority Bondholders
      for attorneys' fees and expenses reasonably incurred in
      connection with the Harbinger Plan, up to a maximum of
      $6 million;

  (f) The Indenture Trustee will be allowed an administrative
      expense claim for fees and expenses incurred under the
      Bonds, aggregating $5.2 million as of July 20, 2009; and

  (g) The Bondholders will release and discharge all of their
      claims or rights against all the Debtors, including all
      the proofs of claims filed by or on behalf of the
      Bondholders.

ASARCO LLC believes that settlement of the Bondholder Claims is
in the best interests of the Debtors and their bankruptcy
estates, as it (i) saves significant attorneys' fees and expenses
that would otherwise be expended in litigating the validity and
amount of the Bondholder Claims, and (ii) eliminates the risks,
uncertainties, and delay in connection to continued litigation.

ASARCO LLC: Settles With NJDEP on Phase II of Amboy Site
--------------------------------------------------------
Judge Richard Schmidt previously approved a compromise and
settlement by and among ASARCO LLC; the New Jersey Department of
Environmental Protection; PA-PDC Perth Amboy, LLC, now known as
PA-PDC Perth Amboy Urban Renewal, LLC; Stolthaven Perth Amboy,
Inc.; and NL Industries, Inc., which provides for the resolution
of all claims asserted against ASARCO with respect to the Perth
Amboy Site, except for the claims of NJDEP and PA-PDC for future
costs for response actions on the Phase II Property.

ASARCO and the NJDEP have determined and agreed that it is
mutually beneficial for them to pursue the sale of, and
environmental liability transfer for, the Phase II Property,
whereby (i) Perth Amboy 1160 LLC will take title to the Phase II
Property, and (ii) Environmental Liability Transfer, Inc., will
assume all environmental obligations and liabilities of ASARCO
with respect to the Phase II Property.

Accordingly, ASARCO, PA-1160 and ELT have entered into a Purchase
and Sale Agreement, pursuant to which PA-1160 would take title to
the Phase II Property and ELT would assume all of the
environmental obligations and liabilities of ASARCO with respect
to the Phase II Property.  On June 22, 2009, the Court approved
the Purchase and Sale Agreement and declared ELT's offer the
highest and best offer for the Phase II Property.  The ASARCO-PA-
1160-ELT Purchase and Sale Agreement provides that if ELT is
unable to obtain an administrative consent order with the NJDEP
within 60 days, the PSA automatically terminates.

PA-1160, ELT and NJDEP have negotiated an Administrative Consent
Order that would obligate PA-1160 and ELT to remediate the Phase
II Property and to obtain a binder for the environmental
insurance.  PA-1160 and ELT will sign the Phase II ACO and bind
the insurance prior to or at the closing on the Phase II Property
under the Purchase and Sale Agreement.

In light of the NJDEP's support for a liability transfer of the
Phase II Property to ELT and the PSA and in order to resolve the
NJDEP's claims against ASARCO and release ASARCO from all of the
obligations and liabilities related to the Phase II Property,
ASARCO and NJDEP entered into a settlement agreement, which
provides that are:

  (a) In settlement and full satisfaction of all claims and
      causes of action of NJDEP against ASARCO for liabilities
      at the Phase II Property, ASARCO will complete the sale of
      the liability transfer for the Phase II Property to
      PA-1160 and ELT pursuant to the PSA within 12 days after
      the Court's issuance of an order approving the ASARCO-
      NJDEP Settlement Agreement;

  (b) Upon closing of the transaction contemplated under the PSA
      and the execution of the Phase II ACO by PA-11160 and ELT,
      the claims of NJDEP against the Debtors for the Phase II
      Property will be considered fully satisfied and the
      NJDEP's Proofs of Claim will be disallowed;

  (c) NJDEP, for itself and on behalf of its commissioner,
      directors, employees, and agents, covenants not to sue or
      assert any civil claim or causes of action against the
      Debtors, including the Debtors in their reorganized form
      pursuant to a confirmed plan of reorganization, under
      certain federal and state environmental laws; and

  (d) ASARCO is entitled to protection from contribution actions
      or claims as provided by Section 113(f)(2) of the
      Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and
      Liability Act, and any similar protections available under
      New Jersey state law, for matters addressed in the ASARCO-
      NJDEP Settlement Agreement.

The effectiveness of the ASRCO-NJDEP Settlement Agreement is
conditioned on the closing of the transactions contemplated under
the Purchase and Sale Agreement and the execution of the Phase II
ACO.

The Settlement Agreement, in conjunction with the PSA, will
result in the completion of site assessments and remediation at
the Phase II Property, thereby promoting the public health and
welfare, Jack L. Kinzie, Esq., at Baker Botts L.L.P., in Dallas,
Texas, contends.

Morris Realty Associates, LLC, filed an objection to the
Settlement.  It contended that the terms of the proposed ASARCO-
NJDEP settlement and the subsequent conveyance of the Perth Amboy
Property to ELT do not comply with the provisions of the Court-
approved ASRCO-PA-1160 Purchase and Sale Agreement.  ASARCO's
settlement request, therefore, is an attempt to modify the PSA
without disclosing the fact that ASARCO has agreed to material
changes in the terms of the proposed sale to ELT that are contrary
to the interests of the Debtor's estate and its creditors,
contends William S. Katchen, Esq., at Duane Morris LLP, in Newark,
New Jersey.  Mr. Katchen says that Morris is a party-in-interest,
being a bidder at the June 12, 2009 hearing, and was part of the
spirited auction that the Court conducted that day.

Following a hearing, the Bankruptcy Court approved the Settlement
Agreement between ASARCO LLC and the NJDEP.  Objections not
previously withdrawn or settled are overruled on their merits.

Pursuant to Sections 105(a), 363(f), and 365 of the Bankruptcy
Code, upon the closing, the Phase II Property will be sold,
transferred, or otherwise conveyed to ELT, free and clear of all
liens and claims, with all the liens and claims to attach to the
proceeds of sale in the order of their priority and with the same
validity, priority, force, and effect which they now have as
against the Phase II Property, subject to the rights, claims,
defenses, and objections, if any, of the Debtors and all parties-
in-interest with respect to the liens and claims.

Effective upon the closing, ELT will assume, pay, perform, and
fully discharge and satisfy, when due, all assumed liabilities
and obligations.

ASARCO LLC: To Settle Montana Workers Obligations
-------------------------------------------------
ASARCO LLC asks the Bankruptcy Court to approve its compromise and
settlement with the state of Montana, the Department of Labor and
Industry - Employment Relations Division, and the Montana Self-
Insurers Guaranty Fund with regard to workers' compensation
obligations.

ASARCO LLC also seeks a finding of dischargeability under Section
1141(d)(1)(A) of the Bankruptcy Code as to any and all of its
Workers' Compensation Obligations to any former employee of the
Montana operations, who received actual or constructive notice of
the deadline for submitting proofs of claim in the Debtor's
bankruptcy case but failed to file a timely proof of claim, upon
confirmation of a plan of reorganization covering the Debtor.

James R. Prince, Esq., of Baker Botts L.L.P., in Dallas, Texas,
relates that ASARCO was self-insured in Montana for workers'
compensation and occupational disease purposes from July 1, 1966,
until September 20, 2001, after which time ASARCO purchased an
insurance policy to cover those expenses.  As a condition to
operating as a self-insured employer, ASARCO LLC posted two
surety bonds for a combined face value of $1,515,000.  As a self-
insured employer, ASARCO engaged a third-party administrator to
handle its workers' compensation obligations in Montana and
ASARCO paid those obligations without any need for recourse to
the surety bonds through August 9, 2005.

After filing for bankruptcy protection, ASARCO LLC ceased paying
prepetition workers compensation obligations in Montana.  Since
the Petition Date, the Montana DLI and the Guaranty Fund have
administered and paid, as they have come due, the Workers'
Compensation Obligations, which include indemnity payments and
ongoing medical expenses relating to prepetition work-related
injuries of former ASARCO employees.

The Montana DLI has drawn the full amount of the Surety Bonds to
pay the Workers' Compensation Obligations, which are estimated to
exceed the face amount of the Surety Bonds.  Mr. Prince says that
it is anticipated that the Montana DLI and the Guaranty Fund will
be obliged to pay the Workers' Compensation Obligations out of
state coffers after the funds obtained from the Surety Bonds are
expended.

Accordingly, on July 27, 2006, the Montana DLI filed Claim No.
10406, seeking $3,203,622, plus future administrative expenses.
The Claim comprises, among other things, of a claim made on
behalf of Montana workers that expect to receive future benefits
under Montana workers' compensation and occupational disease laws
and an administrative expense claim for the amount of benefits
paid by the Montana DLI to former ASARCO workers.  The Guaranty
Fund also filed Claim No. 10407, seeking $3,209,373, plus future
administrative expenses.

A number of former employees of ASARCO LLC received workers'
compensation benefits from the Debtor before the Petition Date
and might be eligible, under Montana law, for future indemnity or
medical benefits relating to prepetition injuries.  About 27 of
the former employees have filed individual proofs of claim
seeking to obtain or preserve those benefits.  A list of the
Individual Claimants is available for free at:

http://bankrupt.com/misc/ASARCO_IndividualClaimants_082809.pdf

Other former employees to whom ASARCO LLC might owe Workers'
Compensation Obligations failed to file proofs of claim in the
Chapter 11 cases.  A list of Individual Non-claimants is
available for free at:

http://bankrupt.com/misc/ASARCO_List_NonClaimants_082809.pdf

ASARCO LLC and the Montana Claimants disagree on the scope and
nature of the Workers' Compensation Obligations as well as the
manner in which future liabilities should be determined, Mr.
Prince discloses.  Nevertheless, ASARCO LLC and the Montana
Claimants agree that the Former Employees should not obtain
double recovery from the Debtor and either the Montana DLI or the
Guaranty Fund for the Workers' Compensation Obligations.
Consequently, the Debtor and the Montana Claimants engaged in
negotiations and have ultimately reached a compromise.

The key terms of the parties' Settlement Agreement are:

  (a) ASARCO LLC's total liability arising from the Workers'
      Compensation Obligations in connection with any
      prepetition injuries to the Former Employees, including
      past and future medical and other expenses, is $2,060,000.
      The Parties agree that the Montana Claimants'
      administrative expense claim for the administration and
      payment of those benefits to Former Employees is $63,000.

  (b) In full satisfaction of all of the Debtors' existing and
      future Workers' Compensation Obligations in the state of
      Montana, the Montana Claimants will be allowed:

        (1) a single general unsecured claim for $545,000, which
            is an amount equal to the Stipulated Amount minus
            the amounts received by the Montana Claimants under
            the Surety Bonds; and

        (2) a single administrative expense claim in the amount
            of the Administrative Fee.

  (c) The Settlement Agreement is contingent on the Court's
      disallowance of the Individual Claims.  To that end,
      ASARCO LLC is filing contemporaneously an omnibus
      objection, seeking to disallow and expunge the Individual
      Claims as duplicative and satisfied under the terms of the
      Settlement Agreement.

  (d) The Settlement Agreement is also contingent on the Court's
      finding that Individual Non-claimants, who received notice
      of the applicable bar date, whether actual or
      constructive, but failed to file a timely proof of claim,
      are forever barred from asserting a claim against ASARCO
      LLC for Workers' Compensation Obligations; provided that
      nothing in the Settlement Agreement will impact the
      ability of any of the Individual Non-claimants to seek and
      obtain workers' compensation and occupational disease
      benefits directly from the Montana Claimants.

AXCELIS TECHNOLOGIES: Receives Nasdaq Deficiency Letter
-------------------------------------------------------
Axcelis Technologies, Inc., received a Nasdaq Staff Deficiency
Letter on September 15, 2009, indicating that the Company fails to
comply with the minimum bid price requirement for continued
listing set forth in Marketplace Rule 5450(a)(1).  The letter
gives Axcelis notice that the Company's bid price of its common
stock has closed under $1.00 for the last 30 business days.  On
September 15, 2009, Axcelis' common stock closed at $0.83, up 57%
from the $0.53 close on August 3, 2009, the first day in the 30
business day period used by Nasdaq, reflecting improving industry
fundamentals that are increasing service revenues and leading to
new systems orders.

The Nasdaq notice has no effect on the listing of the Company's
common stock at this time.  Pursuant to Nasdaq Marketplace Rule
5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has an initial period of 180 calendar
days, or until March 15, 2010, to regain compliance.  The letter
states the Nasdaq staff will provide written notification that the
Company has achieved compliance with Rule 5450(a)(1) if at any
time before March 15, 2010, the bid price of the Company's common
stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10
consecutive business days.

If the Company cannot demonstrate compliance with Rule 5450(a)(1)
by March 15, 2010, it may transfer its listing to The Nasdaq
Capital Market if it meets the initial listing criteria set forth
in Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5505, except for the bid price
requirement.  In that case, it may have an additional 180 calendar
day compliance period in which to comply with the minimum bid
price requirement.  The Company currently meets these initial
listing criteria.  Otherwise, the Nasdaq staff may begin the
process to have the Company's securities delisted.  At that time,
the Company may appeal the Nasdaq staff's determination to delist
its securities to a Listing Qualifications Panel.

                     Default Under 4.25% Notes

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, the Company failed
to repay the outstanding principal amount of its 4.25% Convertible
Senior Subordinated Notes plus a maturity premium and accrued
Interest, all aggregating to about $85 million, as of January 15,
2009.  Pursuant to the Indenture and as a result of the Company's
default, the Company was required to pay, upon demand of the
trustee, the entire overdue amount, plus an 8% interest per annum,
plus certain additional costs and expenses associated with the
collection of those amounts.

In January 2009, the Trustee filed a complaint in U.S. District
Court for the District of New York, seeking a judgment for the
amount due on the Senior Subordinated Notes.  On March 31, 2009,
the Company sold to Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd., its 50% stake
in a joint venture with Sumitomo.  The deal resulted in net
proceeds of $122.2 million -- after payment of advisor fees and
other costs of $10.6 million -- a portion of which was used to pay
off, in full, the amounts due to the holder of the Company's 4.25%
Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes.

-------------------------------------------------------------
Bioject Medical Technologies Inc. on September 15, 2009, entered
into Binding Memorandum of Terms with Signet Healthcare Partners,
LLC, the fund manager of each of Life Sciences Opportunities Fund

L.P., relating to those two Convertible Subordinated Promissory
Notes, dated as of December 5, 2007, issued by Bioject to the LOF
Funds in the aggregate principal amount of $600,000 and the
issuance of Series G Convertible Preferred Stock.  The Memorandum
is an enforceable agreement between Bioject and Signet.

Pursuant to the terms of the Memorandum, Bioject will issue shares
of Series G Preferred with an issuance price of $0.13 per share
for roughly $1.125 million payable as follows:

     -- conversion of existing Notes of approximately $675,000,
        including accrued interest; and

     -- cash of $450,000.

Each share of Series G Preferred will be convertible at any time
into one share of Bioject's common stock at the rate of $0.13 per
share, subject to standard anti-dilution adjustments and has the
following rights and preferences:

     -- the Series G Preferred will rank senior to all other
        outstanding preferred and common stock;

     -- in the event of liquidation, the Series G Preferred
        holders will receive $0.13 per share plus any accrued and
        unpaid dividends prior to any payments to any other series
        of preferred or common stock;

     -- no preferred stock will be issued in the future which is
        senior to the Series G Preferred, unless consented to by
        the holders of the Series G Preferred;

     -- the Series G Preferred will accrue an 8% per annum
        dividend, paid annually;

     -- if the Board does not declare a dividend, dividends will
        accrue at 10% per annum from the date of issuance, on a
        cumulative basis;

     -- dividends may be paid in cash or in additional shares of
        Series G Preferred at the original issuance price of $0.13
        per share; and

     -- Series G Preferred votes on an as-converted basis.

        members, two of which will be nominated by the Series G
        Preferred;

     -- a "plain vanilla" charter and bylaws, reasonably
        acceptable to Signet, the manager of the LOF Funds, will
        be submitted for shareholder approval;

     -- an additional option pool equal to 10% of the issued and
        outstanding common stock will be established and awarded
        to existing management and others (such as directors
        or consultants) deemed essential by the Board of Directors
        for value creation going forward.  The options will be
        awarded with an exercise price equal to the issue price of
        the Series G Preferred. 25% of the options will vest on
        December 31st of each of 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, except
        that vesting will be accelerated upon a change of control.
        The options will have a term of 10 years but will contain
        standard provisions relating to the termination of
        employment;

     -- all terms in this Memorandum and any associated
        documentation which require shareholder approval in order
        to be valid and effective will be submitted for
        shareholder approval at Bioject's shareholder meeting to
        be held as soon as reasonably practicable;

     -- the maturity date of the existing Notes will be extended
        from September 15, 2009, to the date occurring 10 business
        days after the date of the shareholder meeting.  If the
        shareholders do not approve the terms of the Memorandum at
        such meeting, the Notes and all accrued interest thereon
        will become due and payable on such 10th business day;

     -- Except for ongoing business transactions already in
        process and the actions of Ferghana Partners under its
        engagement letter with Bioject, Bioject may not solicit or
        accept any offers to purchase any capital stock or assets
        of the company or any acquisition of the company for a
        period beginning the 31st day after execution of the
        Memorandum and ending the seventh business day following
        the shareholder meeting; and

     -- until the 30th day following execution of the Memorandum,
        Bioject has the right to solicit offers and enter into a
        competing transaction, so long as the transaction has

        of Directors, the Notes are paid in full at closing and
        the LOF Funds are paid a fee of $200,000 at closing as
        liquidated damages.

                        Going Concern Doubt

As of June 30, 2009, the Company had $5.6 million in total assets;
$3.2 million in total current liabilities, $1.3 million in
deferred revenues, and $373,000 in other long-term liabilities;
and $636,000 in stockholders' equity.  At June 30, 2009, cash and
cash equivalents totaled $1.3 million and accumulated deficit is
$121.6 million.

In its Form 10-Q report filed August 13, the Company noted that
due to its limited amount of additional committed capital,
recurring losses, negative cash flows and accumulated deficit, the
report of its independent registered public accounting firm for
the year ended December 31, 2008 expressed substantial doubt about
our ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company said it continues to monitor its cash and has taken
measures to reduce expenditure rate, delay capital and maintenance
expenditures and restructure its debt.  However, even if it is
able to defer, convert or restructure debt, the Company expects
needing to do one or more of the following to provide additional
resources in the third quarter of 2009:

     -- secure additional short-term debt financing;
     -- secure additional long-term debt financing;
     -- secure additional equity financing;
     -- secure a strategic partner; or
     -- reduce operating expenditures.

Bioject Medical Technologies Inc., based in Portland, Oregon,
develops and manufactures needle-free injection therapy systems.

capital, recurring losses, negative cash flows and accumulated
deficit, the report of its independent registered public
accounting firm for the year ended December 31, 2008, expressed

going concern.


BROADSTRIPE LLC: Settlement with NCTC Approved by Judge
-------------------------------------------------------
Broadstripe LLC was authorized by the Bankruptcy Court to
implement a settlement with National Cable Television Cooperative
Inc., a provider of programming and hardware purchasing, Bill
Rochelle at Bloomberg reported.  Broadstripe has agreed to pay
NCTC $3.5 million, plus $500,000 for NCTC attorney fees.
Broadstripe has also agreed to pay NCTC in advance for services.

Mr. Rochelle recounts that when the petition was filed,
Broadstripe owed NCTC $3.5 million.  A lawsuit ensued in which
Broadstripe initially won an injunction from the Bankruptcy Court
compelling NCTC to continue allowing participation in new
programming agreements.

Broadstripe already filed a proposed reorganization plan to carry
out an agreement reached before the Chapter 11 filing with holders
of the first- and second-lien debt.  However, a lawsuit by the
official committee of unsecured creditors that seeks to invalidate
the lenders' liens is pending and has delayed the Plan.  Until the
suit is resolved, the Committee won't support a plan that
recognizes the validity of the lenders' claims.

Under the Plan, the Debtors' senior secured obligations under the
first lien credit agreement will be exchanged for new debt and
convertible debt instruments issued by the Reorganized Debtor.
The Debtors' junior secured obligations under the Second Lien
Credit Agreement and remaining general unsecured claims against
Debtors (other than Broadstripe Capital LLC) will be converted to
equity through the issuance of new members interests in the
Reorganized Debtor.

The first lien credit facility consists of a revolving credit
facility and a term loan, which bear interest at the Base Rate
plus the applicable rate for portions and the Eurodollar rate plus
applicable rate.  As of Dec. 31, 2008, the amount outstanding
under (i) the credit facility was $10.2 million priced at LIBOR
plus 7%, and (ii) the term loan was $170.6 million -- excluding
incurred but unpaid expenses -- priced at LIBOR plus 7%.  On the
one hand,  the second lien credit facility comprised of two term
loans: term loan C and term loan D, which provide for cash
interest to be paid on the term loans in an amount equal to LIBOR,
and PIK interest accrued on the term loans for the balance.  In
March 2008, the PIK interest terms of the loans were made
consistent and now accrue at 14.5% per annum under the first
amended second lien credit facility.  As of Dec. 31, 2008, the
total aggregate amount under the loans was about $102.1 million --
excluding incurred but unpaid expenses.  The first lien credit
facility is secured by first liens on and security interest in
substantially all of the Debtors' assets while the other facility
is secured by second priority liens on and security interest in
substantially all of the Debtors' assets.

CELESTICA INC: Fitch Puts Stable Outlook; Has 'BB-' Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
In a special report issued, Fitch Ratings says the credit quality
of rated U.S. electronics manufacturing services issuers has
improved as companies allocated cash proceeds from recent reduced
working capital requirements toward debt reduction.  Fitch's
Outlook for the sector is now Stable versus a Negative Outlook at
the beginning of the year.  Fitch expects moderate revenue growth
over the intermediate term coupled with marginal improvement in
profitability to further stabilize and improve credit metrics.  In
addition, liquidity remains strong for the sector with minimal
near-term maturities.

Results for the sector through the first half of 2009 were
predictably dour due to the overall economic environment but
exhibited signs of stability that the sector has been missing over
the past several years.  Specifically, it appears competitors have
maintained rational behavior in regard to pricing, which when
combined with reduced overall capacity in the sector has enabled
EMS vendors to maintain margins at or above levels of early 2007
despite declines of more than 20% in revenue.

Fitch believes management teams appear to be taking a disciplined
approach to their respective balance sheets and expects only
modest share repurchases, if any, over the next year in preference
to preserving liquidity to support increased working capital
requirements once normalized revenue growth returns.

There are credit concerns however, with a focus on the potential
for pricing pressure to negatively affect profitability and cash
flow going forward.  While Fitch believes pricing has remained
healthy so far through the downturn, several EMS vendors have
commented on increasing price competition in the industry.  In
addition, further revenue declines could lead to additional
restructuring activity, negatively affecting cash flow for several
quarters.

Companies covered in the EMS report are:

* Celestica Inc. -- Rated 'BB-', Stable Outlook;
* Flextronics International Ltd. -- Rated 'BB+', Stable Outlook;
* Jabil Circuit, Inc. -- Rated 'BB+', Positive Outlook;
* Sanmina-SCI Corp. -- Rated 'B', Stable Outlook.

CHARTER COMM: Allen Says Plan Provides More Benefits to Company
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge James Peck of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York is expected to enter a ruling soon as to
whether he is confirming Charter Communications Inc.'s prepackaged
Chapter 11 plan.  On Sept. 18, the parties submitted their post-
trial briefs plus proposed findings of fact and conclusions of
law.  While the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors is
supporting the Plan, secured lenders are against it.  The secured
lenders contend that allowing Paul Allen to retain control of the
company post-bankruptcy only benefits the Microsoft co-founder,
Paul Allen.

Pre-bankruptcy Charter reached agreement with majority of the
holders of notes issued by units CCH I, LLC and CCH II notes and
controlling shareholder Paul Allen on the terms of a consensual,
prearranged Plan.  The deal contemplates the investment by members
of an ad hoc bondholder committee of more than $3 billion,
including up to $2 billion in equity proceeds, $1.2 billion in
roll-over debt and $267 million in new debt to support the overall
refinancing.  Paul Allen will continue as an investor, and will
retain the largest voting interest in the Company.

Director and controlling shareholder Paul Allen in his post-trial
brief said that after investing and losing more than $8 billion in
the Charter enterprise, he was perfectly entitled to have said
"enough," to have resigned from Charter's Board and to have
assumed no post-reorganization obligations.  "Mr. Allen was not
required to participate in the Plan (with or without
consideration), morally or legally.  And Delaware's fiduciary
concepts are not to the contrary," Mr. Allen's counsel, Susan L.
Saltzstein, Esq., at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP,
said.

According to Mr. Allen, CCI Noteholders mischaracterizes the Plan
as an insider transaction, purportedly designed for the primary
purpose of protecting Mr. Allen from potential tax liabilities.
He asserts that evidence demonstrates that the Plan was conceived
and structured to benefit the enterprise, not Mr. Allen, whose
extensive equity interests -- and more than $8 billion cash
investment -- will be eliminated under the Plan.

Ms. Saltzstein asserts that the Plan was designed to address
Charter's need to shed significant debt and create a sustainable
capital structure in the face of unprecedented conditions in the
credit market, and to preserve the company's valuable tax
attributes.  She notes that as the evidence demonstrates, the CII
Settlement confers benefits on Charter totaling more than
$3 billion, consisting of:

  -- Up to $2 billion in interest expense savings;

  -- $1.14 billion in value attributable to NOL preservation;

  -- A step-up in basis premised on Mr. Allen engaging in post-
     reorganization taxable exchanges of his interests in
     Charter Communications Holding Company for stock of
     reorganized Charter, which could result in additional tax
     savings with a net present value of approximately $500
     million; and

  -- Mr. Allen's CII's Class A Preferred Units of CC VIII, LLC
     one of the Debtors' operating subsidiaries.

By comparison, Mr. Allen will receive only $180 million worth of
consideration, consisting of a note ($85 million), stock in the
reorganized Charter ($60 million, most of which is subject to a 5-
year lock-up) and warrants ($35 million), plus a release designed
to insulate Mr. Allen from nuisance suits.

"The disparity in the benefits Charter will receive compared to
the consideration it will provide to Mr. Allen makes the CII
Settlement unquestionably fair to Charter," Ms. Saltzstein argues.

In any event, the CCI Noteholders' subjective view that the
settlement does not inflict enough financial harm on Mr. Allen
when compared against the consideration to be provided to
Mr. Allen is irrelevant and ignores altogether the value of
Mr. Allen's contributions to Charter, Ms. Saltzstein tells the
Court.

CHRYSLER LLC: Estate Has Incurred $12-Bil. Loss Since Filing
------------------------------------------------------------
Old CarCo LLC, formerly Chrysler LLC, recorded a net loss
$12,053,000,000 on revenues of $595,000,000 from April 30, 2009,
until July 31, 2009.

Reorganization items, which include $64,000,000 in fees paid to
professionals for the winding down of Chrysler's business and
losses in connection with the Fiat transaction, have reached
$10,210,000,000.

Chrysler has total assets of $2,283,000,000 against debts of
$20,587,000,000 as of July 31, 2009.  It has $171,000,000 in cash.

In June, the Debtors completed a sale of their key assets to an
entity owned by Fiat S.p.A. and the U.S. and Canadian governments.
New Chrysler agreed to assume certain of the Debtors' liabilities
and pay $2 billion in cash.  Old CarCo has taken a $12.07 billion
loss on the Fiat sale.

In connection with its bankruptcy filing, Chrysler obtained
debtor-in-possession financing of $4,960,000,000, consisting of a
$3,800,000,000 note payable to the United States Department of the
Treasury, and a $1.16 billion note payable to Export Development
Canada.  As of July 31, 2009, the outstanding amount of principal
and interest under the DIP Credit Agreement was $3,340,000,000 and
$57,000,000, respectively.  No further borrowings are permitted
under the DIP credit agreement.

Chrysler LLC and 24 affiliates on April 30 sought Chapter 11
protection from creditors (Bankr. S.D.N.Y (Mega-case), Lead Case
No. 09-50002).  Chrysler hired Jones Day, as lead counsel; Togut
Segal & Segal LLP, as conflicts counsel; Capstone Advisory Group
LLC, and Greenhill & Co. LLC, for financial advisory services; and
Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC, as its claims agent.  Chrysler has
changed its corporate name to Old CarCo following its sale to a

agreement with Fiat SpA, the U.S. and Canadian governments and
other key constituents regarding a transaction under Section 363
of the Bankruptcy Code that would effect an alliance between
Chrysler and Italian automobile manufacturer Fiat.  Under the
terms approved by the Bankruptcy Court, the company formerly known
as Chrysler LLC on June 10, 2009, formally sold substantially all
of its assets, without certain debts and liabilities, to a new
company that will operate as Chrysler Group LLC.  Fiat has a 20

CHRYSLER LLC: Appeal From Termination of Dealerships Dismissed
--------------------------------------------------------------
Tarbox Motors Inc. and Tarbox Chrysler Jeep LLC, have asked the
U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York to
determine whether the Bankruptcy Court erred in its June 9, 2009
sale order, and later in its June 19, 2009 opinion, authorizing
Chrysler LLC to reject 789 dealership agreements.  In connection
with the sale of key assets to Italy-based automaker Fiat S.p.A.,
Chrysler did not assign all dealership contracts to Fiat as the
latter wanted a more efficient dealership network for New
Chrysler.

The appeal was dismissed when Tarbox informed the District
Court that it didn't oppose dismissal, Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg
News said.  Thus, no appellate court will decide whether Chrysler
was properly entitled to cut off dealerships.

Bankruptcy Judge Arthur Gonzalez in September approved Old CarCo
LLC's request to enforce the automatic stay and the order
approving the sale of substantially all of their assets to Fiat
S.p.A.  The judge ruled that dealers should withdraw their actions
by September 10, 2009, or they will be subject to a sanction of
$10,000 per day and payable to the Court until full compliance.

CITADEL BROADCASTING: S&P Downgrades Unsolicited Ratings to 'CCC-'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services said it lowered its unsolicited
ratings on Citadel Broadcasting Corp. to 'CCC-' from 'CCC'.  At
the same time, S&P lowered its unsolicited issue-level ratings on
the company's senior secured credit facilities to 'CCC-', the same
level as the corporate credit rating.  The recovery rating of '4'
remains unchanged, indicating S&P's expectation of average (30% to
50%) recovery for lenders in the event of a payment default.

"We expect Citadel will be unable to comply with covenants in its
amended credit agreement, specifically the requirement to have at
least $150 million of available cash as of Jan. 15, 2010," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael Altberg.

Cash balances stood at $27.8 million as of June 30, 2009.  The
company generated only $21.8 million of discretionary cash flow
for the first six months of 2009, down roughly 47% from the year-
ago period.  Although S&P expects the company to continue to
generate modest discretionary cash flow for the remainder of the
year, based on S&P's estimates for further EBITDA declines in
2009, S&P believes the company will fall significantly short of
its minimum cash requirement.  In addition, EBITDA coverage of
interest expense was very low, at 1.3x for the second quarter of
2009.  S&P is concerned that if EBITDA continues to deteriorate,
the company could have difficulty meeting cash interest payments
over the intermediate term, especially in the seasonally weak
first quarter of 2010.

The 'CCC-' corporate credit rating reflects Citadel's high debt
leverage and marginal interest coverage as a result of declining
EBITDA and the June 2007 debt-financed acquisition of ABC Radio,
uncertainty regarding its ability to meet covenants in early 2010,
competition from larger radio operators in the majority of its
markets, ongoing challenges to improving profitability at acquired
stations, advertising spending volatility, and significant
obstacles to asset sales.  The company, which had 165 FM and 58 AM
radio stations in more than 50 markets as of Feb. 19, 2009, is the
third-largest radio operator in terms of revenues.


CITY CAPITAL: Posts $1.14 Million Net Loss for March 31 Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
City Capital Corporation filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended
March 31, 2009.

City Capital posted a net loss of $1,149,823 for the three months
ended March 31, 2009, from a net loss of $723,695 for the same
period a year ago.  City Capital booked revenues of $102,739 for
the three months ended March 31, 2009, from $7,000 for the same
period a year ago.

As of March 31, 2009, the Company had $3,835,542 in total assets
and $6,537,433 in total liabilities, resulting in $2,877,499 in
stockholders' deficit.  The Company's March 31 balance sheet also
showed strained liquidity with $3,084,885 in total current assets
and $6,138,933 in total current liabilities.

As of December 31, 2008, the Company had total assets of
$2,531,761 and total liabilities of $4,839,438, resulting in
stockholders' deficit of $2,307,677.

The Company said it will continue to be dependent on its ability
to obtain additional debt or equity financing to accomplish its
business strategy and to ultimately achieve profitable operations.

CLASSICSTAR LLC: Eastern Star Seeks Removal From Suit
-----------------------------------------------------
Eastern Star Gas Ltd., a developer of gas reserves in Australia's
eastern states, has asked a federal court in Lexington, Kentucky,
to remove the company from a lawsuit filed by the liquidator for
bankrupt ClassicStar LLC, Erik Larson at Bloomberg News reports.

According to the report, the liquidator of ClassicStar has filed a
lawsuit accusing Eastern Star's former joint-venture partner
Gastar Exploration Ltd. of helping drain $656 million from
ClassicStar's Kentucky horse-breeding program.  The liquidator
claims Gastar might have diverted ClassicStar funds to Eastern
Star.

Eastern Star "was not involved in any way in the mare leases" and
"did not receive or benefit from any allegedly diverted monies,
and did not itself divert any monies," the company said in its
filing.

                       About ClassicStar LLC

Headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky, ClassicStar LLC operated as
a thoroughbred horse breeder.  The Company also leased horses and
rents out the reproductive systems of select thoroughbred mares.

ClassicStar filed for bankruptcy in 2007 amid claims it
misrepresented herding horses as thoroughbreds, sold rights to
horses that didn't exist and lied about the tax benefits of
investing in it.  The Company filed for Chapter 11 protection
Sept. 14, 2007 (Bankr. E.D. Ky. Case No.07-51786).

James W. Gardner, Esq., at Henry Watz Gardner Sellars & Gardner,
PLLC, represented the Debtor.  Elizabeth Lee Thompson, Esq., at
Stites & Harbison, PLLC, represented the Creditors Committee.

In April 2008, the Hon. William S. Howard of the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky converted
ClassicStar LLC's Chapter 11 case to a Chapter 7 liquidation
proceeding.  The U.S. Trustee for Region 8, asked for the
conversion, saying there is no reasonable likelihood that the
Debtor will propose a bankruptcy plan.

The Amended Loan Agreement provides that the Company must deliver

indebtedness of the Company, including the Sub Notes and the
StaffBridge Note, agreeing to defer and postpone payments of
principal and interest in respect of such indebtedness until one
or more dates on or after December 31, 2009.  In accordance with
the Amended Loan Agreement, the Sub Notes and the StaffBridge Note
were amended pursuant to the Amended Sub Notes and the Extension
Agreement, respectively.

According to the Company, on September 11, 14, and 15, 2009, CPR
amended and restated the Sub Notes by issuing Third Amended and
Restated Promissory Notes dated September 8, 2009 -- Amended Sub
Notes -- to Fergco Bros. LLC, Alyson P. Drew, B&N Associates, LLC,

amounts outstanding under the Amended Sub Notes shall become
immediately due and payable.

                       Going Concern Opinion

Historically, ClearPoint has funded its cash and liquidity needs
through cash generated from operations and debt financing.  At
June 30, 2009, the Company had an accumulated deficit of
$55,412,191 and working capital deficiency of $8,904,055.
Although the Company restructured its debt and obtained new
financing in the third quarter of 2009, cash projected to be
generated from operations may not be sufficient to fund operations
and meet debt repayment obligations during the next 12 months.  To
meet its future cash and liquidity needs, the Company may be
required to raise additional financing and restructure existing
debt.  There is no assurance that the Company will be successful
in obtaining additional financing and restructuring its existing
debt.  If the Company does not generate sufficient cash from
operations, raise additional financing and restructure existing
debt, there is substantial doubt about the ability of the Company
to continue as a going concern.

During the six months ended June 30, 2009, ClearPoint did not make
certain required payments under the Loan Agreement with ComVest,
the Blue Lake Note, the Sub Notes payable to Sub Noteholders and
the StaffBridge Note.

and efforts."

------------------------------------------------------------------
Cooper-Standard Holdings Inc. and its affiliated debtors obtained
the Court's authority to hire Richards Layton & Finger P.A. as
their bankruptcy co-counsel effective August 3, 2009.

Allen Campbell, vice-president and chief financial officer of
Cooper-Standard Holdings, says that in light of the extensive
legal services needed to help the Debtors during their
bankruptcy, they have decided to tap Richards Layton although
they have already sought the services of Fried Frank Harris
Shriver & Jacobson LLP.

Mr. Campbell says the two firms have already talked about the
division of responsibilities regarding representation of the
Debtors and would make every effort to avoid duplication of
services.

As co-counsel, Richards Layton is tasked to provide advice to the
Debtors about their powers and duties, and to take all necessary
actions to protect and preserve the Debtors' estates.  The firm
is also tasked to prepare legal papers in connection with the
administration of the estates and other legal services.

In return for Richards Layton's services, the Debtors will pay
the firm its customary hourly rates.  The professionals
designated to represent the Debtors and their hourly rates are:

  Mark Collins          $675
  Michael Merchant      $525
  Chun Jang             $300
  Drew Sloan            $255
  Dana Reynolds         $245
  Janel Gates           $195

The firm will also be reimbursed for its reasonable, out-of-
pocket expenses.

The Debtors have already paid the firm a retainer for $125,000.

Michael Merchant, Esq., a director of Richards Layton, assures
the Court that his firm does not hold or represent interest
adverse to the Debtors and their estates, and that the firm is a
"disinterested person" under Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy
Code.

COOPER-STANDARD: Wins Nod for A&M as Restructuring Adviser
----------------------------------------------------------
Cooper-Standard Holdings Inc. and its affiliated debtors obtained
authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware to employ Alvarez & Marsal North America LLC as their
restructuring adviser effective August 3, 2009.

Allen Campbell, vice-president and chief financial officer of
Cooper-Standard Holdings, says the firm is well-qualified for the
job given its extensive experience in providing advisory services
in the restructuring and reorganization of companies involved in
complex Chapter 11 cases.

Mr. Campbell says that A&M's managing director, Robert Campagna,
is well-suited to provide the restructuring support services and
to lead the assignment required by the Debtors.

As restructuring adviser, A&M is tasked to:

  (1) assist the Debtors in preparing and developing short-term
      cash flow forecasts and liquidity plans;

  (2) assist the Debtors' management team and counsel focused on
      the coordination of resources related to the ongoing
      reorganization effort;

  (3) assist in preparing financial information for distribution
      to creditors and other concerned parties;

  (4) attend meetings and assist the Debtors in their
      discussions with potential investors, banks and other
      secured lenders, any official committee appointed in their
      cases and the U.S. Trustee, as requested;

  (5) assist the Debtors in analyzing information required
      under the proposed debtors-in-possession financing;

  (6) analyze creditor claims and assist the Debtors in
      developing database to track those claims;

  (7) assist the debtor in preparing financial-related
      disclosures required by the Court; and

  (8) assist in identifying executory contracts and leases, and
      conduct evaluation with respect to their assumption or
      rejection.

A&M will be paid for its services at these hourly rates:

  Managing Directors      $625 - $850
  Directors               $450 - $625
  Associates              $300 - $450
  Analysts                $225 - $300

The firm will also be reimbursed of the expenses incurred in
connection with its employment as restructuring adviser.

A&M has already received various retainers in connection with the
preparation of the Debtors' bankruptcy filing.  The unapplied
remaining retainer for $200,000, will constitute a general
retainer for postpetition services, will not be segregated by A&M
in a separate account, and will be held until the end of the
Debtors' cases and applied to the firm's fees approved by a final
court order.

Robert Campagna, managing director of A&M, assures the Court that
his firm does not hold or represent any interest adverse to the
Debtors and their estates, and that it is a "disinterested
person" as that term is defined under Section 101(14) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

COUDERT BROTHERS: Lease, Amendment Are One Contract
---------------------------------------------------
According to Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News, U.S. District Judge
Denise Cote in New York ruled on Sept. 4 that an amendment to a
lease is part of the lease itself.  Consequently, a bankrupt
company can't reject the amendment and assume the lease, the judge
said.

Judge Cote, Mr. Rochelle relates, looked in part to New York law
in deciding that the lease and amendment together made up one
contract.  Because the lease was assumed, so too was the
amendment, Judge Cote said.

The case is Development Specialists Inc. v. 1114 6th Avenue
Co. (In re Coudert Brothers LLP), 09-5047, U.S. District Court,
Southern District New York (Manhattan).

                      About Coudert Brothers

Coudert Brothers LLP was an international law firm specializing in
complex cross-border transactions and dispute resolution.  The
firm had operations in Australia and China.  The Debtor filed for
Chapter 11 protection on Sept. 22, 2006 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case
No. 06-12226).  John E. Jureller, Jr., Esq., and Tracy L.
Klestadt, Esq., at Klestadt & Winters, LLP, represent the Debtor
in its restructuring efforts.  The U.S. Trustee for Region 2
appointed five creditors to serve on an Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.  Brian F. Moore, Esq., and David J.
Adler, Esq., at McCarter & English, LLP, represent the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  In its schedules of assets and
debts, Coudert listed total assets of $29,968,033 and total debts
of $18,261,380.

The Bankruptcy Court in August 2008 signed an order confirming
Coudert Brothers LLP's chapter 11 plan.  The Plan contemplated on
paying 39% to unsecured creditors with $26 million claims.


COYOTES HOCKEY Balsillie Says Melnyk Contradicts NHL on Veto Right
------------------------------------------------------------------
Eugene Melnyk, owner of the Ottawa Senators, said in a radio
interview that every National Hockey League owner can veto a new
team in his territory, Jim Balsillie stated in documents filed
with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.  According to Bloomberg News,
Mr. Balsillie's legal team has repeatedly used the alleged veto
power to argue that the league is unfairly opposing his effort to
move the Coyotes from Arizona to southern Ontario.

"Mr. Melnyk admitted the continued effectiveness of the illegal
NHL constitutional territorial veto," Mr. Balsillie's lawyers
said, according to the Bloomberg report.  "Moreover, his remarks
confirm that the real reason for the rejection of Mr. Balsillie's
ownership application is this veto."

NHL official had said owners voted to reject Mr. Balsillie, saying
they can't trust him because of his actions in trying previously
to acquire and move two hockey teams.

The Hon. Redfield T. Baum of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Arizona is scheduled to convene a hearing on Phoenix
Coyotes owner Jerry Moyes's request for emergency hearing to order
the National Hockey League to mediate the "key sale issues".

Jerry Moyes is supporting the bid for the Coyotes by James L.
Balsillie's group PSE Sports and Entertainment.  Mr. Balsillie is
offering $242.5 million to creditors for Coyotes, which include
$50 million for the city of Glendale.  Mr. Balsillie, however,
will move the team from Glendale to Hamilton Ontario.

NHL has voiced opposition to Mr. Balsillie's offer for the
Coyoytes.  To fend off Mr. Balsillie's bid, the NHL submitted its
own bid, offering $140 million for the Coyotes in hopes that it
could keep the team while it finds another buyer.  The NHL has
committed only to one more season in Glendale but said its
preference is to find a buyer who will not move the team.

The Bankruptcy Court has not yet ruled on the winning bidder.

Dewey Ranch Hockey LLC, Arena Management Group, LLC, Coyotes
Holdings, LLC, and Coyotes Hockey, LLC -- owners and affiliates of
the Phoenix Coyotes National Hockey League team -- filed for
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Ariz. Case No. 09-09488) on
May 5, 2009.  The Debtors are represented by Thomas J. Salerno,
Esq., at Squire, Sanders & Dempsey, LLP, in Phoenix, and estimate
their assets and liabilities are between $100 million and
$500 million.


CREATIVE DESPERATION: Frivolous Suits Bring $92,500 in Sanctions
----------------------------------------------------------------
In Creative Desperation's Chapter 11 case, a bankruptcy lawyer was
hit with sanctions of $92,500 and suspension from practice in
bankruptcy court for six months as the result of failing to
disclose conflicts of interest and filing frivolous lawsuits,
according to a Sept. 11 opinion by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge John K.
Olson in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News
reported.

Charles D. Franken, Esq., in Plantation, Florida, may have made
his biggest mistake in naming Olson as defendant in one of the
lawsuits the bankruptcy judge called frivolous, Mr. Rochelle said.
Before Mr. Franken can reapply for authority to practice in
bankruptcy court, he must take 30 hours of courses on legal
ethics, Judge Olson ruled.

Weston, Florida-based Creative Desperation Inc., dba Galileo
Systems International, was founded by Peter Letterese.  Creative
Desperation has changed its name six times.  Its other names
include Peter Letterese & Associates Inc., Safepoint Family
Training, Buildstrong International and S.A.V.E. International.

The Debtor filed its Chapter 11 petition on June 30, 2008 (Bankr.
S.D. Fla. Case No. 08-19067).  Judge John K. Olson presides over
the case.  Charles D. Franken, Esq., represents the Debtor in its
restructuring efforts.  The Debtor listed total assets of
$501,000,050 and total liabilities of $2,552,400 when it filed for
bankruptcy.


CRUCIBLE MATERIALS: Allegheny Acquires Assets for $40.95 Million
----------------------------------------------------------------
Allegheny Technologies Incorporated expects to purchase the assets
of Crucible Compaction Metals and Crucible Research for $40.95
million as a result of an auction held on September 21, 2009, as
part of a U.S. Bankruptcy Court proceeding.  The transaction is
expected to close no later than October 31, 2009.

As reported by the TCR on September 1, 2009, Crucible Materials
obtained permission from Judge Mary Walrath to conduct a September
21 auction for substantially all its assets.

Crucible Materials is seeking to sell virtually all its assets at
an auction, although it has reached a contract only with a buyer
for its compact and research divisions.  Under the proposed
timetable, all bids to compete in the auction would have to be
submitted by September 17.

Crucible said that the DIP lenders set an August 14 deadline to
identify a stalking horse bidder for all of its assets and obtain
entry of a sales procedures order.  Crucible says that despite its
best efforts, it has not been able to identify a stalking horse
for, or negotiate an asset purchase agreement covering,
substantially all of its assets.  Crucible says that while
negotiations with DIP lenders are ongoing, it is presently in a
"technical state of default" under the loan agreement.

According to the TCR, the Debtors have decided to enter into an
asset purchase agreement with Carpenter Technology Corp. for the
sale of their compaction and research divisions, subject to any
higher and better offers.  Carpenter will pay $20 million, subject
to adjustments, for the two divisions.  The parties agree to
closing not later than October 31.

The Debtors have not received any firm offers for the remaining
assets, which they intend to auction off at the same time as the
compaction and research divisions.

Based in Pittsburgh, Allegheny Technologies Incorporated --
http://www.alleghenytechnologies.com/-- is one of the largest and
most diversified specialty metals producers in the world with
revenues of $5.3 billion during 2008.  ATI has approximately 8,700

The Company and its affiliate, Crucible Development Corporation,
filed for Chapter 11 protection on May 6, 2009 (Bankr. D. Del.
Lead Case No. 09-11582).  Mark Minuti, Esq., at Saul Ewing LLP
represents the Debtors in their restructuring efforts.  The
Debtors engaged Duff & Phelps Securities LLP as investment banker;
RAS Management Advisors LLC as business advisor; and Epiq
Bankruptcy Solutions LLC as claims agent.  Roberta A. DeAngelis,
United States Trustee for Region 3, appointed five creditors to
serve on the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  The
Debtors listed assets and debts both ranging from $100 million to
$500 million.


CRUSADER ENERGY: Equity Committee Opposed by Management, Creditors
------------------------------------------------------------------
According to Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News, Crusader Energy
Group Inc. will appear before the Bankruptcy Court on Sept. 30 to
oppose motion by shareholders for the appointment of an official
equity committee.  The second-lien creditors and the official
committee of unsecured creditors are also opposing the creation of
an official equity committee.

The second-lien lenders, according to the report, said the assets
have been marketed, with no bid coming close to producing enough
for a distribution to equity holders.

The group of equity holders pushing for equity committee said the
appointment of an equity committee in the Chapter 11 cases is
clearly justified and "absolutely necessary" to assure adequate
representation of the Debtors' equity security holders' interests.
The Debtors have substantial equity value based on their cash flow
potential and intrinsic values underlying their oil and gas
assets, the Ad Hoc Committee asserts.  It cited (i) the
application of 24-month NYMEX futures strip pricing to the
Debtors' existing production levels, which reflect equity value in
the $25 million to $50 million range, and (ii) the Debtors' "shut
in" reserves, which would produce an additional equity value in
the $30 million to $60 million range.  Hence, the Debtors' equity
value could very well be in excess of $100 million, the Group
says.

Bankruptcy Court for District of Delaware for its proposed bidding
procedures and timetable for the sale of substantially all of its

the September 15 hearing the Bankruptcy Court granted other
motions seeking various forms of relief, including the company's
retention of professionals to assist it during its Chapter 11
proceedings and its continued use of postpetition financing.  This
relief will allow Cynergy Data to operate in the ordinary course
during its Chapter 11 restructuring.

DELPHI CORP: Court OKs Sale of Interest in PBR Joint Venture
------------------------------------------------------------
PBR Automotive Knoxville Inc. and PBR Automotive Tennessee Inc.
formed a joint venture called PBR Automotive USA L.L.C. pursuant
to a Limited Liability Company Agreement.  PBR Automotive
Knoxville Inc. owned 51% of the joint venture, while PBR
Automotive Tennessee Inc. owned the remaining 49%.  PBR
Automotive Knoxville Inc. changed its name to PBR Tennessee Inc.
By May 1999, Delphi Automotive Systems Tennessee, Inc., or DAST
acquired PBR Automotive Tennessee Inc.'s 49% and has continued to
own such interest.

The LLC Agreement allows each member of the joint venture to
participate in managing the company.  The joint venture is
primarily financed through member contributions, cash flow from
operations, and a recent loan provided by Robert Bosch Finance
LLC, an affiliate of Robert Bosch LLC.  The LLC Agreement also
contains a prohibition on the transfer of membership interests,
and DAST and PBR Tennessee are generally restricted from
transferring their membership interests without the other
member's consent.

Accordingly, the Debtors sought and obtained approval for DAST's
entry into an letter agreement dated July 30, 2009, with Bosch.
The Letter Agreement provides that DAST will sell its 49%
membership interest to Bosch, an affiliate of PBR Tennessee, free
and clear of all liens, for $1.75 million.

The Letter Agreement also provides that the period for repayment
of amounts owing under the Joint Venture Loan would continue
until the earlier of the closing of the sale under the Agreement
or August 31, 2009.  Bosch may extend the closing deadline under
certain circumstances up to September 15, 2009.  Moreover, PBR
Knoxville, a related PBR entity, and PBR Tennessee and the
Debtors entered into stipulations resolving the PBR parties'
proofs of claim.

John Wm. Butler, Esq., at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom
LLP, in Chicago, Illinois, notes that the continued ownership of
the Membership Interest would potentially require DAST to make
further capital investments in PBR Knoxville under the LLC
Agreement.  Moreover, the Debtors have ascertained in connection
with their Transformation Plan that the manufacture of brake
parts as those produced by the joint venture is no longer a core
business.  In light of the potential restrictions on transfer of
the Membership Interest, an August 31, 2009 expiration of the
period for repayment of amounts outstanding under the Joint
Venture Loan, and the fact that there is no ready market for the
Membership Interests, DAST believes that it has sound business
reason for entering into the Letter Agreement and consummating
the sale of its Membership Interest to Bosch.

DEVELOPERS DIVERSIFIED: Provides Update on De-Leveraging Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Developers Diversified Realty announced progress on de-leveraging
initiatives and provides these updates on recent company
activities:

     -- Equity sale to Otto Family

        The second tranche of 15 million common shares was sold to
        the Otto family for $60 million on September 18, 2009,
        completing the transaction announced in February 2009 to
        sell 30 million shares to the Otto Family.  An additional
        1.8 million common shares were also issued, representing
        dividends paid since the date of the agreement.  Warrants
        for an additional five million common shares were issued
        at the time of closing at $6.00 per share as per the
        agreement.  The warrants, aggregating 10 million in total,
        may be exercised at the discretion of the Otto Family any
        time within five years of issuance.

     -- New director appointment

        In conjunction with the closing of the second tranche of
        equity, the Company's Board of Directors elected Dr.
        Thomas Finne as a new director.  Dr. Finne was appointed
        to the Dividend Declaration Committee.  The Board of
        Directors now consists of 11 members, four of whom (Dr.
        Thomas Finne, Mr. James Boland, Mr. Daniel Hurwitz and Dr.
        Volker Kraft) have joined the Board in the past six
        months.

     -- Equity issuance

        Between August 10 and September 17, the Company sold
        approximately 18.4 million common shares for approximately
        $157 million through the common equity program established
        through BNY Mellon Capital Markets, LLC, completing the
        $200 million program established in late 2008.

     -- Asset sales

        Year to date, the Company has generated over $439 million
        in gross proceeds from asset sales, $260 million of which
        closed during the third quarter.  In conjunction with the
        sales this year, $151 million of mortgage debt was
        eliminated.  The Company's share of proceeds year to date
        is $289 million gross and $230 million net of mortgage
        debt eliminated.  The Company has an additional
        $192 million of assets under contract for sale or subject
        to letter of intent, most of which are expected to close
        in 2009.

     -- Senior unsecured note purchases

        In addition to the tender offers for unsecured notes that
        retired $250 million aggregate principal amount of debt on
        September 14 and 17, the Company purchased $38.7 million
        of its convertible senior unsecured notes in the third
        quarter at a weighted average 84% of par.  Including the
        notes tendered in the tender offer and notes bought on the
        open market, the total discount to par achieved was
        approximately $28 million for the third quarter and
        approximately $164 million year to date.

     -- Macquarie DDR Trust joint venture

        The Company has liquidated its entire equity interest in
        Macquarie DDR Trust (ASX: MDT).  In addition, the Company
        anticipates that the redemption of its interest in the DDR
        Macquarie Fund in exchange for 100% ownership in three
        assets will occur early in the fourth quarter, subject to
        the receipt of approvals from MDT unitholders.  Once the
        redemption is complete, the Company will no longer share
        in over $1 billion of mortgage debt owed by the DDR
        Macquarie Fund.

     -- Mortgage financing

        The Company continues to make progress on two large
        mortgage financings, each secured by a pool of assets, and
        now expects that if both were completed, proceeds would
        exceed the original guidance of $600 million.  The Company
        expects to close on the first new mortgage loan of
        approximately $400 million early in the fourth quarter.
        The Company is working to structure a large portion of the
        loans to be TALF-eligible.

     -- Operating FFO guidance lowered

        As a result of these transactions that have reduced
        leverage well in excess of prior guidance, the Company has
        lowered 2009 operational guidance, excluding certain non-
        recurring and one-time items, to $1.90-$2.00 per share
        from $2.00-$2.15 per share.

David Oakes, Senior Executive Vice President of Finance and Chief
Investment Officer, commented, "The above transactions and
financings represent our continued commitment to improve
liquidity, lower leverage and simplify our structure. We are
pleased by what we have accomplished thus far in 2009 and we look
forward to continuing to execute upon the capital plan that we
have previously outlined."

The Company periodically evaluates opportunities to issue and sell
additional debt or equity and purchase, refinance or otherwise
restructure debt for strategic reasons or to further strengthen
the financial position of the Company, and anticipates continuing
to utilize a combination of these capital initiatives to achieve
its goals of deleveraging and enhancing liquidity.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, Developers
Diversified in August 2009 commenced three separate offers to
purchase for cash these series of Notes for an aggregate
consideration of $200 million for the maximum aggregate principal
amount of its:

     (1) 5% Notes due 2010 and 4.625% Notes due 2010 available
         for $70,000,000 (excluding accrued interest and subject
         to increase);

     (2) 5.25% Notes due 2011 and 5.375% Notes due 2012 available
         for $90,000,000 (excluding accrued interest and subject
         to increase); and

     (3) 5.50% Notes due 2015 and 7.50% Notes due 2018 available
         for $40,000,000

In each of the offers to purchase, the price was to be determined
in accordance with a modified Dutch auction procedure.  The
Company has proposed to pay up to 80 cents to 99 cents on the
dollar for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes that are accepted
for purchase.

The TCR said August 25 that Standard & Poor's Ratings Services
lowered its rating on Developers Diversified's unsecured debt to
'BB' from 'BB+'.  At the same time, S&P revised its recovery
rating to '3' from '2', indicating S&P's expectation of a lower,
but still meaningful, recovery (50%-70%) in the event of a payment
default.  In addition, S&P affirmed its 'BB' corporate credit
rating on DDR and S&P's 'B' rating on the company's preferred
stock.  S&P's outlook on DDR remains negative.  The '3' recovery
rating affects $1.8 billion of rated senior unsecured notes
currently outstanding and reflects S&P's practice of assigning
recovery ratings to all debt with a speculative-grade rating.

"The ratings and outlook reflect S&P's continued concern that DDR
will face challenges with improving its currently constrained
liquidity position and reducing its still-high leverage before its
meaningful debt maturities in 2011 and 2012, when roughly 60% of
the company's consolidated debt comes due, including its credit
facility," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Elizabeth
Campbell.  "Even following its recent equity and debt capital
raises, the company remains highly reliant on asset sales and
monetizations, including a potential TALF financing, to raise
capital."

Developers Diversified -- http://www.ddr.com/-- as of June 30,
2009 owned and managed approximately 690 retail operating and
development properties in 45 states, plus Puerto Rico, Brazil and
Canada totaling approximately 151 million square feet.  The
Company is a self-administered and self-managed real estate
investment trust operating as a fully integrated real estate
company which acquires, develops and leases shopping centers.


DOLE FOOD: Moody's Affirms 'B2' Rating on $310 Mil. 3rd Lien Notes
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the B2 rating on the proposed
new $310 million 3rd lien Notes due 2016 to be issued by Dole Food
Company, Inc., under Rule 144a.  Moody's affirmed the company's
other ratings, including its B3 probability of default rating and
its B2 corporate family rating.  The affirmations are based on
Dole's continued solid operating performance, this proposed action
to refinance a material portion of a June 2010 bond maturity, and
the planned elimination of non-recourse obligations at an
affiliate guarantor.  The rating outlook remains stable.

Ratings affirmed:

Dole Food Company, Inc.:

* New $310 million (originally rated at $325 million) senior
  secured 3rd lien Notes due 2016 to be issued under Rule 144a at
  B2 (LGD3,37%)

* Corporate family rating at B2

* Probability of default rating at B3

* Senior secured term loan B at Ba2 (LGD1,9%)

* Senior secured prefunded letter of credit facility, also
  available to Solvest, to Ba2 (LGD1,9%)

* $349.9 million senior secured 3rd lien notes due 2014 at B2
  (LGD3,37%)

* Senior unsecured notes at Caa1 (LGD5,76%)

Solvest Ltd.

* Senior secured term loan C at Ba2 (LGD1,9%)

Ratings withdrawn (shelf no longer effective):

Dole Food Company, Inc

* Senior unsecured shelf, senior subordinated shelf and junior
  subordinated shelf at (P)Caa2 (LGD6,92%)

The net proceeds of the new $310 million 3rd lien Notes will
refinance a material portion of the remaining $363 million
outstanding bond due in June 2010.  This will leave a modest
amount for Dole to repay.  Like the 3rd lien Notes issued in
March, the new Notes will be secured by a 3rd lien on the domestic
assets that are pledged to the ABL and to the domestic term loans.
The ABL retains a first lien on domestic cash, receivables and
inventory, and a second lien on the assets that secure the Term
Loan B and prefunded letter of credit facility.  The Term Loan B
and prefunded letter of credit facility retain a first lien on the
majority of Dole's domestic assets, except certain principal
properties, and a second lien on the ABL collateral.  The 3rd lien
Notes will be guaranteed on a senior subordinated basis by the
domestic subsidiaries that guarantee Dole's domestic bank
facilities.

Improved operating margins and debt reductions from asset sales
have reduced leverage, with debt to EBITDA dropping from 9.4 times
at the end of fiscal 2006 to 5.7 times for the twelve months ended
June 20, 2009.  Reported EBITDA rose from $309 million in fiscal
2007 to $446 million over the last twelve months.  Asset sales
proceeds, with the exception of $100 million annually that can be
reinvested in the business, must be applied to repay senior
secured debt.  Dole owns attractive assets, such as land in
Hawaii, some of which are carried at historical values.  The
company is monetizing non-core assets to further reduce leverage.

Dole's ultimate parent and another affiliate have incurred debt
that is non-recourse to Dole -- $115 million due March 2010 and
$90 million due December 2009, respectively.  While these debts
are non-recourse to Dole, a default under either would trigger a
cross default to Dole's senior secured bank facilities.  For this
reason, Moody's includes this non-recourse debt in Dole's adjusted
leverage.  Moody's anticipates that Dole will repay approximately
$85 million of the $115 million debt with a portion of IPO
proceeds.  The remaining $30 million of the $115 million will be
transferred by Dole to another affiliate of Dole's majority owner.
The $90 million debt will be repaid by Dole's majority owner with
proceeds from a newly formed Trust separate from Dole.  At the
conclusion of these transactions, among others, the possibility of
cross default from affiliate debt to Dole's senior secured credit
agreements will have been eliminated.

Moody's most recent rating action for Dole on August 17, 2009,
assigned a B2 rating to this proposed new 3rd lien notes, affirmed
the B2 rating on the company's existing 3rd lien Notes, and
upgraded the company's other ratings.  The rating outlook remained
stable.

Headquartered in Westlake Village, California, Dole Food Company,
Inc., is the world's largest producer of fresh fruit, fresh
vegetables and value-added fruits and vegetables.  Sales for the
twelve months ended June 20, 2009 were approximately $7.6 billion.


DOLE FOOD: S&P Assigns 'B-' Rating on $315 Mil. Junior-Lien Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
On Sept. 18, 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its
issue-level and recovery ratings to Dole Food Co. Inc.'s proposed
$315 million junior-lien senior secured notes due 2016.  The notes
are rated 'B-' (the same as the corporate credit rating), and the
recovery rating is '3', indicating S&P's expectation of meaningful
(50% to 70%) recovery in the event of a payment default.  Dole
will use the net proceeds from the issuance to redeem its
$363 million unsecured notes due June 2010, at par, and pay
related fees, premiums, and expenses.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's lowered its issue rating on
Dole's existing unsecured debt to 'CCC+' (one notch lower than the
corporate credit rating) from 'B-'.  S&P revised the recovery
rating on this debt to '5', indicating S&P's expectation for
modest (10%-30%) recovery in the event of a payment default, from
'4'.  This change in the recovery rating reflects the increase in
secured debt ranking ahead of the unsecured debt, due to the
proposed new senior secured notes issue.

As of June 20, 2009, Dole had about $2 billion of debt
outstanding.

The ratings on Westlake Village, California-based Dole Food Co.
Inc. reflect its highly leveraged financial profile and
participation in the competitive, commodity-oriented, and volatile
fresh produce industry, which is subject to seasonality, as well
as political and economic risks.  The company has upcoming debt
maturities in 2010 and 2011.

The outlook on the corporate credit rating is developing.  Dole
has improved its operating performance in the year to date period
of 2009, and credit metrics have strengthened.  S&P expects the
company to continue to improve performance and reduce leverage.
S&P could upgrade Dole following the successful refinancing of its
June 2010 $363 million debt maturity (which S&P expects to occur
following this note offering), other near-term liquidity events
are resolved, and improved operating performance trends are
sustained.  Although the company plans to repay the 2010 notes
with proceeds from this note offering, other liquidity events
include a $115 million loan at the parent (DHM Holding Co. Inc.)
due on March 3, 2010, and a $90 million loan at an affiliate due
on Dec. 23, 2009.  If those maturities are not successfully
addressed, the $115 million loan would result in a cross-default
and cross-acceleration to Dole, and the $90 million loan could
lead to a cross-default to Dole.  Dole has filed an amended S-1 on
Sept. 18, 2009, for a potential IPO of up to $500 million, with
net proceeds to repay debt.  As part of the planned IPO, Dole
expects certain actions to be taken that would resolve the cross-
default issues under the loans.

S&P could lower the ratings if Dole does not address its upcoming
maturities on a timely basis, if other near-term liquidity events
are not successfully resolved, operating performance declines,
and/or covenant cushion becomes weak.

EASTMAN KODAK: Fitch Affirms Issuer Default Rating at 'B-'
----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has revised Eastman Kodak Company's Rating Outlook
to Stable from Negative and affirmed the ratings subsequent to the
company's disclosure of $700 million of anticipated gross proceeds
from debt issued via private placements.  Fitch has affirmed
Kodak's ratings:

  -- Issuer Default Rating at 'B-';
  -- Senior secured revolving credit facility at 'BB-/RR1';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'B-/RR4'.

Fitch expects to rate the company's proposed $400 million
unsecured convertible note 'B-/RR4'.

The Stable Outlook reflects Kodak's improved near-term liquidity
and financial flexibility, assuming the company completes the debt
offerings as proposed and utilizes a portion of the proceeds to
tender for $575 million of convertible senior unsecured notes at
par, which mature in 2033, although Fitch expects these notes will
be put to the company in 2010.  Although Fitch anticipates Kodak
to generate cash in the second half of 2009 due to the seasonality
of the company's free cash flow profile, full-year 2009 cash usage
is expected to approximate $300 million-$400 million, with further
cash usage in the first half of 2010.  As a result, a successful
tender of the putable notes partially alleviates Fitch's liquidity
concerns, given the company's $1.2 billion pro forma cash position
and minimal debt maturities of approximately $40 million -
$50 million through 2013, with the next significant maturity,
consisting of $500 million of notes, occurring in 2013.

Kodak intends to obtain $700 million of debt financing, including
i) $300 million of notes due 2017 from Kohlberg Kravis & Roberts
Co.  L.P.  (KKR), which will be secured by a second lien on the
collateral that secures the revolving credit RCF, and which will
pay 10.0% cash interest and 0.5% PIK interest; and ii) a
$400 million 7.0% convertible senior unsecured note due 2017.
Residual proceeds after the tender offer will be used for general
corporate purposes.  KKR will also receive warrants to purchase
40 million shares of Kodak stock, which represents 14.9% of the
current shares outstanding.

Liquidity on June 30, 2009, consisted of approximately
$1.1 billion of cash and cash equivalents and an undrawn asset-
based $500 million senior secured RCF (approximately $131 million
letters of credit outstanding).  The capacity is based on the
company's borrowing base consisting of designated percentages of
eligible receivables, inventory, real property and equipment.
Financial covenants under the amended facility include a minimum
$250 million of U.S.-based cash, as well as a minimum 1.1 times
(x) fixed charge coverage ratio in the event that excess
availability is below $100 million.  As of June 30, 2009,
approximately 25% of RCF capacity matures in October 2010, with
the remainder maturing in March 2012.

The ratings continue to reflect these:

  -- Expectations for significant top-line and operating profit
     deterioration in all of Kodak's businesses through at least
     2009 due primarily to the global economic downturn.

  -- Fitch's belief that growth and margin expansion in Kodak's
     digital businesses necessary to offset the rapid secular
     decline in the high margin traditional film business will
     remain challenging.

  -- Fitch's expectations that the company will not generate
     positive annual free cash flow until 2011 due to lower
     revenue and operating profit and cash restructuring payments.

  -- As anticipated, credit metrics weakened significantly in the
     first half of 2009 due to profitability declines, and Fitch
     expects moderate further weakening in the second half due
     largely to incremental debt associated with the transaction
     and increased interest expense.  Fitch estimates leverage
     (total debt/operating EBITDA) was 4.6x at June 30, 2009,
     compared with 2.5x at year-end 2008.  Interest coverage
     (operating EBITDA/ gross interest expense) declined to 2.7x
     from 4.7x in the same period.

Negative rating actions could occur if:

  -- The announced transactions do not close as planned.

  -- Free cash flow over the next several quarters is
     significantly below Fitch's expectations, resulting in a
     substantial reduction in cash balances;

  -- Kodak's financial results deteriorate beyond Fitch's
     expectations.

Positive ratings actions could occur if:

  -- Kodak experiences a return to top line growth and ongoing
     annual free cash flow generation.

Pro forma for the transaction, Fitch estimates total debt of
approximately $1.4 billion at June 30, consisting primarily of:
i) $500 million senior notes due 2013; ii) $300 million second-
lien secured notes due 2017; and iii) $400 million unsecured
convertible notes due 2017, and iv) approximately $200 million of
various term notes with maturities between 2006-2013.

The Recovery Ratings reflect Fitch's belief that Kodak's
enterprise value would be maximized in a liquidation, rather than
a going-concern, scenario.  In estimating liquidation, Fitch
applies advance rates of 80%, 20%, and 10% to Kodak's accounts
receivables, inventories, and property, plant, and equipment
balances, respectively.  Fitch arrives at an adjusted
reorganization value of $1.3 billion after subtracting
administrative claims.  Based upon these assumptions, the 'RR1'
for Kodak's secured bank facility reflects Fitch's belief that
100% recovery is realistic.  Pro forma for the new second lien and
unsecured debt, Fitch estimates that the unsecured debt would
recover between 31%-50% of its value after the second-lien secured
notes were repaid.  This supports the 'RR4' for the senior
unsecured debt.


EASTMAN KODAK: S&P Downgrades Issue-Level Rating to 'CCC'
---------------------------------------------------------
On Sept. 18, 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its
recovery rating on Eastman Kodak Co.'s senior unsecured debt to
'6', indicating S&P's expectation of negligible (0% to 10%)
recovery in the event of a payment default, from '5'.  S&P lowered
the issue-level rating to 'CCC' (two notches lower than the 'B-'
corporate credit rating on the company) from 'CCC+', in accordance
with S&P's notching criteria for a '6' recovery rating.

On Sept. 16, Eastman Kodak announced that it expects to raise up
to $700 million of debt through a series of financing
transactions.  The proposed financing will include $400 million of
convertible senior notes due 2017 and a private placement of up to
$300 million of senior secured second-lien notes due 2017 (both
unrated).  S&P expects net proceeds to be used to repurchase the
company's existing 3.375% convertible senior notes due 2033 and
for general corporate purposes.

The revision of the recovery rating reflects an increase in S&P's
estimation of secured debt outstanding at default and S&P's
expectation of negligible recovery for unsecured debt after
accounting for the company's senior secured asset-based revolving
credit facility (unrated) and the proposed second-lien notes.

The corporate credit rating on Eastman Kodak is 'B-' and the
rating outlook is negative.  The rating reflects S&P's concern
about the company's earnings and cash flow prospects.  This
concern is based on the ongoing and rapid deterioration of Kodak's
traditional consumer imaging business, the unproven long-term
profit potential of its consumer digital imaging businesses,
longer-term potential for a decline in its entertainment imaging
businesses, significant discretionary cash flow deficits,
vulnerability to economic pressures, and its leveraged financial
profile.

EASY STREET: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
-------------------------------------------------------
Jay Hamburger at The Park Record reports that three Sky Lodge-
related business entities, using their Easy Street Holding, LLC
umbrella moniker, have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
as they try to resolve a $5.6 million dispute with lender BayNorth
Realty Fund VI.

According to court documents, The Sky Lodge seeks the return of
the $5.6 million from BayNorth Realty and other damages.  The Park
Record states that the money came from sales proceeds at the Sky
Lodge.  Court documents say that another lender, West LB AG,
mistakenly authorized the $5.6 million payment on February 15,
2009.  The Sky Lodge and West LB have demanded the return of the
money, but BayNorth Realty refused to give it back.

Court documents say that West LB claims that it wasn't paid
$4.9 million owed by the Sky Lodge, claiming that the company has
defaulted on the agreement.  West LB said in court documents that
it froze two accounts totaling more than $3.2 million that were
used to pay contractor and professional bills.

The Park Record relates that Joe Wrona, one of the Sky Lodge's
lawyers, said that without that money, the Sky Lodge has been
unable to pay some of its contractors in full, resulting in them
filing liens against the property.  According to court documents,
the general contractor filed on September 8 to foreclose on its
lien.  The liens have kept the Sky Lodge from making sales.

According to The Park Record, The Sky Lodge claims that BayNorth
Realty refused to return the money to let it foreclose on its
interests and "ultimately take control of the Sky Lodge" after the
Easy Street side developed the property.

Park City, Utah-based Easy Street Holding, LLC, and its affiliates
filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on September 14, 2009
(Bankr. D. Utah Case No. 09-29905).  Steven J. McCardell, Esq., at
Durham Jones & Pinegar assists Easy Street in its restructuring
efforts.  Easy Street listed $10,000,001 to $50,000,000 in assets
and $1,000,001 to $10,000,000 in liabilities.


ENERGY PARTNERS: Exits Chapter 11 with $70MM GECC Facility
----------------------------------------------------------
Energy Partners, Ltd., said its Second Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization as modified as of September 16, 2009, filed with
the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of
Texas, became effective September 21, marking EPL's emergence from
its voluntary Chapter 11 restructuring.

EPL also said it has entered into a $70 million credit facility
led by General Electric Capital Corporation that will be
immediately available to provide the Company with additional
operating liquidity.

The Hon. Jeff Bohm of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Texas approved Energy Partners Ltd.'s modified version
of a second amended joint plan of reorganization after ruling that
the Company's recent tweaks to the plan were minor in nature and
should not affect its earlier confirmation, according to Law360.

"Energy Partners [has] reached the final milestone in what has
been a very deliberate and successful financial restructuring,"
said Alan D. Bell, Chief Restructuring Officer. "By converting a
substantial amount of our debt to equity, we emerge from Chapter
11 with a much-improved capital structure. Our enhanced financial
flexibility, including our new exit financing facility, will
position us well within our industry. We are pleased to have
completed this process so quickly through close collaboration with
our stakeholders. The completion of our financial restructuring is
a testament to the strength of our underlying business and we
appreciate the unwavering support of our employees and vendors
through this process."

The Company entered into a $70 million senior secured credit
facility with General Electric Capital Corporation as
administrative agent and two financial institutions as lenders
consisting of a $25 million term loan and a three-year revolving
credit facility with $45 million available at closing.  The
Company also issued Senior Subordinated Secured PIK Notes due 2014
in an aggregate principal amount of $61.112 million pursuant to an
Indenture with The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as
trustee.  The Company received net proceeds of $55 million at
closing from the issuance of the Notes.  At the closing, the
Company has drawn $25 million under the revolving credit facility.

In accordance with the terms of the Plan, the holders of the
Company's (i) 8.75% Senior Notes due 2010, (ii) 9.75% Senior
Unsecured Notes due 2014 and (iii) Senior Floating Notes due 2013
collectively will receive their pro rata share of 95% of the
outstanding common stock in the reorganized Company upon its
emergence from bankruptcy, and the existing stockholders in the
Company will receive the remaining 5%, in each case prior to any
issuance of shares or options under customary employee incentive
arrangements. Under the Plan, EPL will issue a total of 40 million
shares of reorganized EPL common stock.

Current stockholders will receive approximately 0.06166332 shares
of reorganized EPL common stock per share of existing common stock
held, holders of the Company's 8.75% Senior Notes due 2010 will
receive approximately 82.04816992 shares of reorganized EPL common
stock per $1,000 in principal amount held, holders of the
Company's 9.75% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2014 will receive
approximately 84.55394278 shares of reorganized EPL common stock
for each $1,000 in principal amount held and holders of the
Company's Senior Floating Notes due 2013 will receive
approximately 81.76345569 shares of reorganized EPL common stock
per $1,000 in principal amount held.

The reorganized EPL common stock will trade on the New York Stock
Exchange under the ticker symbol EPL, and the Company anticipates
that the reorganized common stock will begin trading later this
week. In addition to the 40 million shares to be issued under the
Plan, EPL has reserved 1.237 million shares for issuance pursuant
to the terms of its 2009 Long Term Incentive Plan.

In accordance with the terms set forth in the Plan, unsecured
creditors are to be paid in full for all allowed prepetition
obligations in cash.  The Company anticipates making these
payments to unsecured creditors shortly.

EPL has also satisfied its obligations to the Minerals Management
Service, due upon its emergence from bankruptcy.  As a result, the
MMS' March 23, 2009 order has been rescinded and the Company is in
the process of restoring production at the federal portion of its
East Bay field.

In conjunction with its emergence from Chapter 11, EPL appointed a
new Chief Executive Officer and Board of Directors effective
immediately.

ENERGYSOLUTIONS LLC: Moody's Downgrades Default Rating to 'B1'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the probability of default
rating for EnergySolutions, LLC, to B1 from Ba3.  In its rating
action, Moody's maintained EnergySolutions Speculative Grade
Liquidity Ratings overall rating of SGL-2 but changed various
component scores to reflect and anticipated performance.  The
company's instrument ratings were affirmed as was the company's
Ba3 CFR.

The downgrade of EnergySolutions probability of default rating to
B1 from Ba3 reflects the decision to use a 65% recovery rating
because of the "all bank" capital structure resulting from the
reduction in the company's pension liabilities.  The SGL-remains
at an SGL-2 with an internal component score change to SGL-2 from
SGL-1.  All other component scores -- external at SGL-2; covenants
at SGL-2; and alternative liquidity at SGL-4 -- were not changed.
Moody's notes that failure to maintain adequate room under its
covenants could result in a change in this component score and
pressure the overall SGL rating.

The stable outlook continues to reflect the expectation of
continuing positive free cash flow generation and that this cash
flow will allow the company to improve its overall credit metrics
over the intermediate term.  The outlook may change to negative if
the company were unable to maintain adequate room under its
covenants or if the company's credit metrics were to fall short of
Moody's current expectations.  The outlook is not anticipated to
be changed to positive over the intermediate term in part because
of the weakness in the company's international business.  Moody's
understands that the international operations weakness has
primarily resulted from currency weakness and not from operating
problems.

The last rating action was July 9, 2008, when Moody's assigned a
Ba2 rating to the existing first lien senior secured credit
facility of EnergySolutions, LLC.  The corporate family rating and
the probability of default rating were assigned at Ba3.  Moody's
also assigned a Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-2 and a
stable rating outlook.

EUROFRESH INC: To Settle Labor Dept.'s Regulations Breach Claim
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dan Sorenson at the Arizona Daily Star reports that Eurofresh Inc.
will settle a claim by the U.S. Department of Labor that alleges
that the Company violated labor regulations by paying foreign
workers more than U.S. workers.

The Department of Labor alleged that Eurofresh illegally
terminated 527 U.S. workers and gave preferential treatment to
foreign workers by offering them housing that was not offered to
U.S. workers, according to Arizona Daily.

Court documents say that Eurofresh will settle potentially more
than $6 million in fines and back-wage payments outlined in the
Department of Labor case for less than $1 million.  Arizona Daily
relates that Eurofresh will pay a priority bankruptcy claim of
$690,500, plus interest, in three payments over the next two years
to settle the Department of Labor case.  The report states that
the Department of Labor will have a $4.9 million unsecured claim
in the bankruptcy case, which would be fully satisfied by a
payment of $245,000 plus interest.

Eurofresh, says Arizona Daily, would deny the alleged violations.
Arizona Daily states that as agreed, the Department of Labor,
acting as a creditor of Eurofresh, would vote in favor of the
Company's Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization plan.  A hearing on
the confirmation of Eurofresh's Chapter 11 reorganization plan is
set for September 28, Arizona Daily reports.

Arizona Daily relates that under the Plan, Eurofresh wuld be
recapitalized by its founder and chairperson, Johan van den Berg,
along with other investors, and shed millions of dollars in debt.

Headquartered in Snowflake, Arizona, Eurofresh, Inc. --

Ryan Smith at The Meadville Tribune reports that Excalibur
Machine, Co., Inc., expects a deal to sell off metals operations
to be sealed before the end of this week.

Guy Fustine, the attorney representing the CORE Manufacturing-
affiliate company Excalibur Machine Co., declined to publicly name

The Meadville Tribune.

The Meadville Tribune states that most lenders and creditors
agreed to allow CORE time to pursue the pending sale of its metals
operations which doesn't include Sipco Inc.  The report says that

the conversion of the Company's Chapter 11 reorganization case to
Chapter 7 liquidation at their discretion.

FLEXTRONICS INT'L: Fitch Gives Stable Outlook; Has 'BB+' Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
In a special report issued, Fitch Ratings says the credit quality
of rated U.S. electronics manufacturing services issuers has
improved as companies allocated cash proceeds from recent reduced
working capital requirements toward debt reduction.  Fitch's
Outlook for the sector is now Stable versus a Negative Outlook at
the beginning of the year.  Fitch expects moderate revenue growth
over the intermediate term coupled with marginal improvement in
profitability to further stabilize and improve credit metrics.  In
addition, liquidity remains strong for the sector with minimal
near-term maturities.

Results for the sector through the first half of 2009 were
predictably dour due to the overall economic environment but
exhibited signs of stability that the sector has been missing over
the past several years.  Specifically, it appears competitors have
maintained rational behavior in regard to pricing, which when
combined with reduced overall capacity in the sector has enabled
EMS vendors to maintain margins at or above levels of early 2007
despite declines of more than 20% in revenue.

Fitch believes management teams appear to be taking a disciplined
approach to their respective balance sheets and expects only
modest share repurchases, if any, over the next year in preference
to preserving liquidity to support increased working capital
requirements once normalized revenue growth returns.

There are credit concerns however, with a focus on the potential
for pricing pressure to negatively affect profitability and cash
flow going forward.  While Fitch believes pricing has remained
healthy so far through the downturn, several EMS vendors have
commented on increasing price competition in the industry.  In
addition, further revenue declines could lead to additional
restructuring activity, negatively affecting cash flow for several
quarters.

Companies covered in the EMS report are:

* Celestica Inc. -- Rated 'BB-', Stable Outlook;
* Flextronics International Ltd. -- Rated 'BB+', Stable Outlook;
* Jabil Circuit, Inc. -- Rated 'BB+', Positive Outlook;
* Sanmina-SCI Corp. -- Rated 'B', Stable Outlook.


FLOWSERVE CORP: S&P Raises Corporate Credit Rating to 'BB+'
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised the corporate credit
rating on Flowserve Corp. by one notch to 'BB+' from 'BB'.  At the
same time, S&P raised the rating on its secured credit facility to
'BB+', the same as the corporate credit rating.  The recovery
rating is '3', indicating meaningful (50% to 70%) recovery in the
event of a default.  The outlook remains positive.

The ratings on Irving, Texas-based Flowserve, a manufacturer of
engineered pumps, valves, and mechanical seals, reflect the
company's satisfactory business risk profile and somewhat
significant financial risk profile.  The company has mitigated
risk by resolving certain legal and investigative issues.
Management has focused on managing debt and improving internal
cash generation, resulting in better-than-expected credit metrics.
The company's end markets have been good, but there is some
uncertainty over the direction of major end markets, such as the
oil and gas and industrial markets over the intermediate term.

S&P could raise the ratings by one notch over the intermediate
term if Flowserve maintains acquisitive and financial discipline.

"We believe order rates have now stabilized, but S&P will continue
to monitor whether the recent decline in bookings may still
accelerate to the detriment of currently good profitability and
cash flow," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst John R.  Sico.
S&P could raise the ratings if Flowserve appears likely to
continue to deliver funds from operations to adjusted total debt
greater than 30% and total adjusted debt to EBITDA of 2.5x to 3x.
Given its geographic and product diversity and substantial
aftermarket business, S&P believes Flowserve can maintain its
strong internal cash generation.  "Management has demonstrated
financial discipline by keeping debt reduction a priority, to the
benefit of credit measures," he continued.  S&P could revise the
outlook to stable if FFO to total debt declines to less than 30%.


FONTAINEBLEAU LAS VEGAS: Terms of Cash Collateral Use Opposed
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fontainebleau Las Vegas Holdings LLC and its affiliates have asked
the Bankruptcy Court to enter an order authorizing their use of
their prepetition lenders' cash collateral.

The official committee of unsecured creditors appointed in the
Chapter 11 cases of Fontainebleau Las Vegas says it does not
object to the Debtors' use of cash collateral so that efforts to
pursue a debtor-in-possession financing or a strategic transaction
can be explored.  The Creditors Committee, however, objects to the
waivers, releases, challenge deadlines and panoply of rights and
benefits afforded to the term lenders for the use of the cash
collateral.   The Committee says it's a violation of local
bankruptcy rules for the lenders to prohibit the use of cash for
payment of fees to professionals for the Committee.   The
Committee requests that the deadline to challenge the Term
Lenders' liens be extended for 30 days to December 15, 2009.

A group of holders of claims on account of prepetition term loans,
on the other hand, submitted an "opposition" to the Debtors'
request for continued use of cash collateral.

"In contrast to prior cash collateral orders entered by this
Court, the Debtors are now seeking authority to use the Term
Lenders' cash collateral without the consent of the entity having
an interest in the collateral," notes Michael I Goldberg, Esq., at
Akerman Senterfitt, on behalf of the Steering Group of Term
Lenders.  "They propose to deplete the Term Lenders' cash
collateral by $2.9 million -- more than double the last budget --
to pay administrative expenses on a project that is only 70%
complete and without any prospect of obtaining the financing
needed to finish construction so that the project can enter a
market that has been characterized in these bankruptcy cases as in
a 'complete state of shambles.'"

Mr. Goldberg asserts that the Court cannot approve the Debtors'
use of cash collateral without the Term Lenders' consent because
the Debtors cannot provide adequate protection.

FORD MOTOR: Developing Voice-to-Text System for Drivers
-------------------------------------------------------
Keith Naughton at Bloomberg News reports that Ford Motor Co. said
it's researching a voice-to-text system for use by motorists,
after endorsing a proposed U.S. ban on texting while driving.  "A
voice-recognition approach is better than bringing in a piece of
paper and unfolding a map or looking down at a mobile device," Jim
Buczkowski, Ford's director of electronics, said after a press
conference Sept. 21 in Dearborn, Michigan.  "We're looking at
various combinations of accomplishing that task because it's being
asked for by consumers."

Ford, which offers the Sync voice-controlled information and
entertainment system, on Sept. 10 became the first automaker to
support the texting legislation.  According to Bloomberg, the
proposal, introduced by New York Senator Charles Schumer, would
withhold 25% of U.S. highway aid from states that don't ban
writing or reading text messages on hand-held devices while
driving.

In endorsing the texting ban, Ford's vice president of government
relations Peter Lawson said the automaker wouldn't support a law
that would restrict hands-free systems such as Sync, developed
with Microsoft Corp. and introduced in 2007.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on April 15, 2009,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it raised its ratings on
Ford Motor Co. and related entities, including the corporate
credit rating, to 'CCC+' from 'SD-'.  The ratings on Ford Motor
Credit Co. are unchanged, at 'CCC+', and the ratings on FCE Bank
PLC, Ford Credit's European bank, are also unchanged, at 'B-',
maintaining the one-notch rating differential between FCE and its
parent Ford Credit.  S&P said that the outlook on all entities is
negative.

Moody's Investors Service in December 2008 lowered the Corporate
Family Rating and Probability of Default Rating of Ford Motor
Company to Caa3 from Caa1 and lowered the company's Speculative
Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-4 from SGL-3.  The outlook is
negative.  The downgrade reflects the increased risk that Ford
will have to undertake some form of balance sheet restructuring in
order to achieve the same UAW concessions that General Motors and
Chrysler are likely to achieve as a result of the recently-
approved government bailout loans.  Such a balance sheet
restructuring would likely entail a loss for bond holders and
would be viewed by Moody's as a distressed exchange and
consequently treated as a default for analytic purposes.

NGPC Asset Holdings LP, which asserts secured claims against

of July 10, 2009.  A schedule of the Rejected Dealer Pacts is
available for free at:

    http://bankrupt.com/misc/GM_RejectedDealerPacts.pdf

Judge Gerber noted that as provided for under the Master Sale and
Purchase Agreement between General Motors Corp. and the entity
sponsored by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, only dealers
that were offered, and accepted Participation Agreements or Wind
Down Agreements will be allowed to continue their dealership
operations as part of General Motors Company.  New GM has
determined not to accept an assignment of any of the Rejected
Dealer Agreements, Judge Gerber said.

All affected dealers who wish to assert claims against the Debtors
arising out of or related to the rejection of the Rejected Dealer
Agreements must file a proof of claim no later than the general
bar date under Rule 3003(c)(3) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
Procedure.


As part of the sale of the Debtors' assets to NGMCO, Inc., the
Debtors decided to reduce the number of their dealerships.  By
this motion, the Debtors seek the Court's authority to reject 70
Dealer Agreements effective July 10, 2009, a list of which is
available for free at:

        http://bankrupt.com/misc/GM_70AffectedDealers.pdf

The Debtors propose that as of July 10, each Affected Dealer is no
longer authorized to, among other things:

  (a) undertake any advertising, sales, repair or service of any
      of the Debtors' or New GM's products as an Authorized
      Dealer under the terms of the Affected Dealer Agreements;

  (b) hold itself out to any third party as an Authorized Dealer
      of the Debtors or New GM for any purpose; and

  (c) display, distribute or otherwise use any signage,
      promotional or other materials bearing or containing the
      Debtors' or New GM's trademarks, tradenames and
      servicemarks, except that it may use the Debtors' or New
      GM's descriptive brand and vehicle model names solely for
      the purpose of identifying and advertising its inventory
      for sale to the extent permitted by applicable law for a
      party that is not an Authorized Dealer of the Debtors.

All of the Affected Dealers who wish to assert claims against the
Debtors arising out of the rejection of the Affected Dealer
Agreements must file proof of claim no later than the general bar
date established by the Court.

compliance with all required debt covenants.

In August 2009, Moody's Investors Service upgraded the Corporate

amendment to its credit facility that substantially improves the
company's liquidity.  As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter

its ratings on Georgia Gulf, including its corporate credit rating
to 'B' from 'D'.  The outlook is stable.


GEORGIA GULF: Stockholders Approve 2009 Incentive Plan
------------------------------------------------------
The stockholders of Georgia Gulf Corporation approved the Georgia
Gulf Corporation 2009 Equity and Performance Incentive Plan on
September 17, 2009.

Under the Plan, a committee designated by the Board consisting
solely of not less than two non-employee directors is authorized
to make awards under the Plan.  The Board has designated the
Compensation Committee as the Committee.  Officers, employees or
consultants of Georgia Gulf or any subsidiary and non-employee
directors of Georgia Gulf may be selected by the Committee to
receive benefits under the Plan at any time prior to 2019.

The Compensation Committee has the authority under the Plan to
delegate such administrative duties or powers as it may deem
advisable under the Plan to one or more of its members or to one
or more of the Company's officers, or to one or more agents and
advisors.  Awards intended to qualify under Section 162(m) of the
Internal Revenue Code and determinations in connection with those
awards must be made only by a committee of the Board consisting
solely of not less than two outside directors within the meaning
of such section.  The Committee may, by resolution, authorize one
or more officers of the Company to do one or both of the following
on the same basis as the Committee: (i) designate employees to be
recipients of awards under the Plan; (ii) determine the size of
any such awards; provided, however, that (A) the Committee shall
not delegate such responsibilities to any such officer for awards
granted to an employee who is an officer, director, or more than
10% beneficial owner of our common stock; (B) the resolution
providing for such authorization sets forth the total number of
shares of common stock such officer(s) may grant; and (C) the
officer(s) shall report periodically to the Committee regarding
the nature and scope of the awards granted pursuant to the
authority delegated.

The Plan may be amended from time to time by the Board, provided
that if an amendment to the Plan (i) would materially increase the
benefits accruing to participants under the Plan, (ii) would
materially increase the number of securities that may be issued
under the Plan, (iii) would materially modify the requirements for
participation in the Plan or (iv) must otherwise be approved by
the stockholders in order to comply with applicable law or the
rules of any national securities exchange upon which the shares of
common stock are traded or quoted, the amendment will not be
effective until such stockholder approval has been obtained.

The Plan authorizes the Board to provide equity-based compensation
in the form of (1) stock options, which entitle the holder to
purchase shares of common stock at a price equal to or greater
than the market value of the shares on the date of grant, (2)
appreciation rights, including both tandem appreciation rights
(the right to receive up to 100% of the spread between the option
price and the current value of the shares of common stock
underlying the option) and free-standing appreciation rights (the
right to receive up to 100% of the spread between the base price
and the current value of a share of common stock at the time of
exercise), (3) restricted shares of common stock, (4) restricted
share units and (5) performance shares, which are the equivalent
of one share of common stock, and performance units, which are the
equivalent of $1.00 or such other value as determined by the
Committee.  Each of the awards is evidenced by an award document
setting forth the terms and conditions of the award.

Subject to adjustment as provided in the Plan, the number of
shares of common stock that may be issued or transferred pursuant
to awards, or in payment of dividend equivalents paid with respect
to awards made under the Plan may not exceed 3,033,000 in the
aggregate, plus any shares of common stock relating to awards that
expire, are forfeited or are cancelled under the Plan.  In
addition to the general limitation on the number of shares of
common stock available under the Plan, the Plan provides for
specific limits and other requirements for certain awards.

Grants of options, appreciation rights, performance shares and
performance share units and restrictions on grants of restricted
shares and restricted share units may be conditioned on the
achievement of performance objectives, called "Management
Objectives," which are described in the Plan.  Management
Objectives may be described either in terms of company-wide
objectives or objectives that are related to performance of the
individual participant or of the division, subsidiary, department,
region, function or other organizational unit in which the
participant is employed.

Awards may provide for acceleration of exercisability or early
termination of restrictions in the event of the death, disability
or retirement of a participant, a change of control (as defined in
the Plan) or, solely in the case of awards of restricted share
units, a refinancing of the Company's principal debt agreements.

Any evidence of an award under the Plan may provide (and the forms
of agreement attached hereto do provide) that if a participant, if
an employee either during employment or within a specified period
after termination of employment, and if a consultant, during the
period of consulting with the Company or a subsidiary or within a
specified period thereafter, engages in any detrimental activity,
as defined in the Plan, the participant must:

     -- return to the Company, in exchange for payment by the
        Company of any amount actually paid by the participant for
        the shares of common stock, all shares of common stock
        that the participant has not disposed of that were offered
        under the Plan within a specified period prior to the date
        of the commencement of the detrimental activity; and

     -- with respect to any shares of common stock so acquired
        that the participant has disposed of, pay to the Company
        in cash the difference between:

        * any amount actually paid for the shares of common stock
          by the participant; and

        * the market value per share of the shares of common stock
          on the date of the disposition.

Generally, a detrimental activity includes competing with the
Company's business, soliciting the Company's employees, disclosing
of confidential information and other specified conduct
detrimental to the Company's business.

These awards of restricted share units were made to the executive
officers indicated in the table below subject to stockholder
approval of the Plan.  On July 27, 2009, the date of the initial
grant, the closing price per share of the common stock was $8.75.
One-half of the restricted stock units will vest in equal
installments on July 27, 2010, 2011, and 2012, or earlier in the
event of a change of control.  One-third of the remaining one-half
of the restricted stock units will vest on each of July 27, 2010,
2011, and 2012 if the Company is in compliance with the financial
covenants in its senior secured credit facility and,
notwithstanding such provisions, all of such remaining one-half
will vest immediately if such facility is refinanced before
July 27, 2012.  The awards are evidenced by restricted share unit
agreements.

supplemental indenture, dated as of September 11, 2009, among the
Company, the Parent Guarantor and U.S. Bank National Association,
as trustee, to an indenture, dated as of June 10, 2009, among
Harrah's Operating Escrow LLC and Harrah's Escrow Corporation,
wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company, the Parent Guarantor, as
parent guarantor and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee,
as supplemented by the supplemental indenture, dated June 10, 2009
among the Company and the Indenture Trustee.

The Indenture provides that the notes are guaranteed by the Parent
Guarantor and are secured by substantially all of the assets of
the Company and the assets of the subsidiaries of the Company that
have pledged their assets to secure the Company's obligations
under the Company's senior secured credit facilities.

The Company will pay interest on the notes at 11.25% per annum,
semiannually to holders of record at the close of business on
May 15 or November 15 immediately preceding the interest payment
date on June 1 and December 1 of each year, commencing December 1,
2009.

The Company may redeem the notes, in whole or part, at any time
prior to June 1, 2013, at a price equal to 100% of the principal
amount of the notes redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest to
the redemption date and a "make-whole premium."  The Company may
redeem the notes, in whole or in part, on or after June 1, 2013,
at the redemption prices set forth in the Indenture.  At any time
(which may be more than once) before June 1, 2012, the Company may
choose to redeem up to 35% of the principal amount of the notes at
a redemption price equal to 111.250% of the face amount thereof
with the net proceeds of one or more equity offerings so long as
at least 50% of the aggregate principal amount of the notes at
maturity issued of the applicable series remains outstanding
afterwards.

The Indenture contains covenants that limit the Company's (and
most of its subsidiaries') ability to, among other things: (i)
incur additional debt or issue certain preferred shares; (ii) pay
dividends on or make other distributions in respect of its capital
stock or make other restricted payments; (iii) make certain
investments; (iv) sell certain assets; (v) create or permit to
exist dividend and/or payment restrictions affecting its
restricted subsidiaries; (vi) create liens on certain assets to
secure debt; (vii) consolidate, merge, sell or otherwise dispose
of all or substantially all of its assets; (viii) enter into
certain transactions with its affiliates; and (ix) designate its
subsidiaries as unrestricted subsidiaries.  The covenants are
subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions.  The
Indenture also provides for events of default, which, if any of
them occurs, would permit or require the principal, premium, if
any, interest and any other monetary obligations on all the then
outstanding notes to be due and payable immediately.

                   Registration Rights Agreement

On September 11, 2009, in connection with the issuance of the
notes, the Company and the Parent Guarantor entered into a
registration rights agreement with J.P. Morgan Securities Inc.,
Banc of America Securities LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc.,
Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and Deutsche Bank Securities
Inc. as representatives of the initial purchasers, relating to,
among other things, the exchange offer for the notes and the
related guarantee.

Subject to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the
Company and the Parent Guarantor will use their commercially
reasonable efforts to register with the SEC notes having
substantially identical terms as the notes as part of offers to
exchange freely tradable exchange notes for notes within 365 days
after the issue date of the notes.  The Company and the Parent
Guarantor will use their commercially reasonable efforts to cause
each exchange offer to be completed within 30 business days after
the effectiveness target date.

If the Company and the Parent Guarantor fail to meet these
targets, the annual interest rate on the notes will increase by
0.25%.  The annual interest rate on the notes will increase by an
additional 0.25% for each subsequent 90-day period during which
the registration default continues, up to a maximum additional
interest rate of 1.0% per year over the applicable interest rate,
which is 11.25%.  If the registration default is corrected, the
applicable interest rate will revert to the original level.

                Joinder to Intercreditor Agreement

On September 11, 2009, the Indenture Trustee entered into a
joinder to the intercreditor agreement, dated as of December 24,
2008, and supplemented as of April 15, 2009 and June 10, 2009,
among Bank of America, N.A., as credit agreement agent, U.S. Bank
National Association, as trustee, U.S. Bank National Association,
as second priority agent and each collateral agent for any future
second lien indebtedness from time to time party thereto.

Pursuant to the Joinder to the Second Lien Intercreditor
Agreement, the Indenture Trustee became a party to and agreed to
be bound by the terms of the Second Lien Intercreditor Agreement
as another first priority lien obligations agent, as if it had
originally been party to the Second Lien Intercreditor Agreement
as a first priority agent.  The Second Lien Intercreditor
Agreement governs the relative priorities of the respective
security interests in the Company's and certain subsidiaries'
assets securing (i) the notes, (ii) the 11.25% senior secured
notes due 2017 issued pursuant to the Indenture on June 10, 2009,
(iii) the 10.0% second-priority senior secured notes due 2018
issued pursuant to the indenture dated as of April 15, 2009, among
the Company, Parent Guarantor and U.S. Bank National Association,
as trustee, (iv) the 10.0% second-priority senior secured notes
due 2015 and the 10.0% second-priority senior secured notes due
2018 issued pursuant to the indenture, dated as of December 24,
2008, among the Company, Parent Guarantor and U.S. Bank National
Association, as trustee and (v) borrowings under the senior
secured credit facilities and certain other matters relating to
the administration of security interests.

              Other First Lien Secured Party Consent
                    to the Collateral Agreement

On September 11, 2009, the Indenture Trustee entered into an other
first lien secured party consent to the Collateral Agreement, as
authorized representative, for persons who shall become secured
parties under the amended and restated collateral agreement dated
and effective as of January 28, 2008 (as amended and restated on
June 10, 2009) among the Company, each subsidiary of the Company
identified therein as a party and Bank of America N.A., as
collateral agent, for the Secured Parties.

Pursuant to the Collateral Agreement Consent, the notes will be
secured on a first priority basis by substantially all of the
assets of the Company and the assets of the Subsidiary Pledgors,
and the Collateral Authorized Representative was authorized to
become a party to the Collateral Agreement on behalf of the New
Collateral Secured Parties under the Indenture and to act as the
Collateral Authorized Representative for the New Collateral
Secured Parties.

              Other First Lien Secured Party Consent
               to the Guaranty and Pledge Agreement

On September 11, 2009, the Indenture Trustee entered into an other
first lien secured party consent to the Guaranty and Pledge
Agreement, as authorized representative, for persons who shall
become secured parties under the Amended and Restated Guaranty and
Pledge Agreement, dated and effective as of January 28, 2008 (as
amended and restated on June 10, 2009) by the Parent Guarantor in
favor of Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and
collateral agent for the lenders party to the senior secured
credit facilities.

Pursuant to the Guaranty and Pledge Consent, the Parent Guarantor
guarantees the payment of the notes and grants to the Agent for
the benefit of the New Guaranty Secured Parties a security
interest in all of its rights and title in the Collateral as
collateral security for prompt payment on the notes, and the
Authorized Representative was authorized to become a party to the
Guaranty and Pledge Agreement on behalf of the New Guaranty
Secured Parties under the Indenture and to act as the Guaranty
Authorized Representative for the New Guaranty Secured Parties.

                           *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter said June 15, 2009, that Standard &
Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit ratings on
Harrah's Entertainment and Harrah's Operating to 'CCC+' from
'CCC', reflecting S&P's assessment that the recent capital raise,
combined with an amendment to certain terms of HOC's senior
secured credit facilities, has alleviated S&P's concerns that
given S&P's expectation for operating performance this year, HOC
would not be able to remain in compliance with its senior secured
leverage ratio covenant.  In addition, S&P raised the issue-level
rating on HOC's senior secured credit facilities to 'B' (two
notches higher than the 'CCC+' corporate credit rating) from 'B-'.
The recovery rating on these loans remains at '1', indicating
S&P's expectation of very high (90% to 100%) recovery for lenders
in the event of a payment default.


HINDSDALE GREYHOUND: Court OKs Sale of Section of Land to Wal-Mart
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Associated Press reports that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in
Manchester has allowed Wal-Mart to purchase a section of land once
owned by Hinsdale Greyhound Park.

The Keene Sentinel relates that creditors who are owed money by
Hinsdale Greyhound could have $500,000 if and when the land is
sold.  The court has granted a motion setting aside that sum,
which could be used to repay creditors if Wal-Mart purchases the
land, The AP states.

Hinsdale Greyhound Park is a racetrack that opened in 1958 as a
seasonal harness track.  It has featured only greyhound races
since 1985.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Jan. 9, 2009,
Hinsdale Greyhound Park filed for Chapter 7 liquidation in
December 2008.  It owes money to 200 to 1,000 people or
organizations, and it owes the state of Massachusetts about
$4,500.  It is behind on its taxes to the tune of $327,000.

HTG REAL: Wants Access to Creditors' Cash Collateral
----------------------------------------------------
HTG Real Property Management Inc. asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Western District of Texas for authority to:

   -- use cash securing repayment of loans with AR Utilities,
      First National Bank, Holt Texas Ltd. dba Holt Cat and Jacobs
      Family Trust; and

   -- grant adequate protection to prepetition lenders.

The Debtor requires access to cash collateral to operate its
business.

The Debtor related that:

   -- Indebtedness claimed by First National Bank is on account of
      unpaid rent for real property, which liens allegedly were
      created in recorded deeds of trust on certain tracts.

   -- Indebtedness claimed by AR utilities, Holt Texas Ltd., and
      Jacobs Family Trust is primarily monies owed to the creditor
      based upon judgments entered against the Debtor, the alleged
      liens are based upon abstract of judgments recorded in the
      real property records of Bexar County.  The Debtor asserts
      that the said alleged liens are preferential transfers and
      disputes that either the recorded abstract of judgments or
      the turnover orders create a lien on rent.

The Debtor proposes to provide adequate protection by granting
First National Bank a first priority lien on postpetition rent
from the real property.  The Debtor proposes to grant the Judgment
Creditors by granting a lien on postpetition rent from the real
property.

A hearing on the cash collateral motion is set for Sept. 23, 2009
at 2:30 p.m. at S.A. Courtroom 3.

HUNTINGTON BANCSHARES: New Capital Won't Move S&P's 'BB+' Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its ratings on
Huntington Bancshares Inc. (BB+/Negative/B) remain unchanged
following the company's announcement of newly raised capital.  S&P
has a favorable view of Huntington's successful completion of its
common equity offerings (totaling $1.135 billion), since
management estimated a need of $675 million in May 2009 following
regulatory stress tests.

This new capital improves the firm's tangible common equity-to-
tangible assets ratio to an acceptable 6.57% (pro forma as of
June 30, 2009) -- a significant improvement from a very weak 4.04%
at the end of 2008.  The company issued $1.3 billion (3% of risk
weighted assets) in Troubled Asset Relief Program preferred stock
to the U.S. Treasury.  Given the stressed economic conditions in
Huntington's Midwest market, S&P expects credit quality and
profitability will remain under pressure through 2009 and into
2010.  The company has reported losses in 2008 and first-quarter
2009 due to a combination of credit losses and goodwill impairment
charges.  Huntington's credit quality is weak, with problems
especially heightened in its commercial real estate and commercial
and industrial loans -- together, 58% of loans.  The company's
consumer loan book has also weakened in the past year.


INDALEX HOLDINGS: Creditors Want Case Converted to Chapter 7
------------------------------------------------------------
Dawn McCarty at Bloomberg News reports that unsecured creditors
have asked the Bankruptcy Court to convert Indalex Holdings
Finance Inc.'s Chapter 11 case to liquidation under Chapter 7.

"A liquidation under Chapter 7 will yield greater net return to
the creditors," the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
said.  "No rehabilitation is contemplated and an insider
litigation target should not be the only beneficiary of the
Chapter 11 process."

The Creditors Committee, according to Ms. McCarty, alleges that
secured creditor Sun Capital Partners Inc. is an insider "that has
received in excess of $80 million in potentially avoidable
transactions."  The transactions in question consist of a $69.3
million dividend payment to Sun Indalex LLC; more than $10 million
in management fees and costs paid to Sun Capital Management; and
about $15 million in liens that didn't attach until a few months
before the bankruptcy filing.

                      About Indalex Holdings

Indalex Holdings Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Indalex
Holdings Finance Inc., through its operating subsidiaries Indalex
Inc. and Indalex Ltd., with headquarters in Lincolnshire,
Illinois, is the second largest producer of soft alloy extrusion

extrusion presses with circle sizes up to 20 inches, a variety of
fabrication and close tolerance capabilities, two anodizing
operations, two billet casting facilities, and six electrostatic
paint lines, including powder coat capability.

Indalex is indirectly controlled by private-equity investor Sun
Capital Partners Inc.  Sun Capital purchased Indalex in 2005 from
Honeywell International Inc. for $425 million.  Indalex is the
12th investment by Boca Raton, Florida-based Sun Capital to file
in Chapter 11 since January 2006.

Indalex Holdings and four affiliates filed for Chapter 11 on
March 20 (Bankr. D. Del., Lead Case No. 09-10982).  Donald J.
Bowman, Jr., Esq., at Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor, in
Wilmington, Delaware, has been tapped as counsel.  Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions LLC is the claims and noticing agent.  In its bankruptcy
petition, Indalex listed assets of $356 million against debt
totalling $456 million.

As reported in the TCR on July 28, 2009, the Bankruptcy Court has
authorized Indalex to sell its business to Sapa Holding AB.  Sapa
offered to pay (i) $90.1 million in cash and for the Debtors' U.S.
assets; and (ii) $31.7 million in cash for the Canadian assets.


INSIGHT HEALTH: Swings to $19.7MM Net Loss for June 30 Fiscal Year
------------------------------------------------------------------
InSight Health Services Holdings Corp. reported its financial
results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30,
2009.

InSight posted a net loss of $2.34 million for the fourth fiscal
quarter ended June 30, 2009, from a net loss of $127.7 million for
the prior fiscal year.  It posted a net loss of $19.7 million for
the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009, from net income of
$27.1 million for the prior year.

InSight reported that revenues decreased 17.3% from roughly
$64.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2008, to roughly
$53.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.  Revenues from fixed
operations decreased roughly 20.6% from roughly $40.7 million for
the fourth quarter of 2008, to roughly $32.3 million for the
fourth quarter of 2009, principally due to the disposition of
imaging centers.  Revenues from mobile operations decreased
roughly 11.7% from roughly $24.1 million for the fourth quarter of
2008, to roughly $21.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2009
primarily due to reductions in reimbursement from its customers
and a decline in the number of customers served.

Revenues decreased roughly 13.5% from roughly $264.9 million for
fiscal 2008, to roughly $229.3 million for fiscal 2009.  Revenues
from fixed operations decreased roughly 17.5% from roughly
$168.8 million for fiscal 2008, to roughly $139.3 million for
fiscal 2009 primarily due to the disposition of imaging centers.
Revenues from mobile operations decreased roughly 6.4% from
roughly $96.1 million for fiscal 2008, to roughly $90.0 million
for fiscal 2009 primarily due to reductions in reimbursement from
its customers and a decline in the number of customers served.

Net cash provided by operating activities was roughly
$18.1 million for fiscal 2009 and resulted primarily from Adjusted
EBITDA of roughly $39.7 million less roughly $25.3 million of cash
paid for interest, cash paid for taxes of roughly $400,000 and
various changes in InSight's balance sheet accounts, primarily
operating assets and liabilities, deferred income taxes and net
distributions from its unconsolidated partnerships.

At June 30, 2009, Insight had $176.1 million in total assets
against accounts payable and accrued expenses of $36.0 million,
notes payable, including current maturities, of $279.9 million,
capital leases, including current maturities, of $4.0 million; and
stockholders' deficit of $153.9 million.

At June 30, 2009, InSight had roughly $26.1 million in cash, cash
equivalents and restricted cash (including roughly $6.5 million
that was subject to the lien for the benefit of the senior secured
floating rate notes), and roughly $12.2 million of availability
under its revolving credit facility, based on its borrowing base.
At June 30, 2009, there were no borrowings outstanding under the
credit facility; however, there were letters of credit of roughly
$1.9 million outstanding under the credit facility.

Adjusted EBITDA increased roughly 11.4% from roughly $9.1 million
for the fourth quarter of 2008, to roughly $10.1 million for the
fourth quarter of 2009.  Adjusted EBITDA decreased 1.2% from
roughly $40.2 million for fiscal 2008, to roughly $39.7 million
for fiscal 2009.  Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2009
increased roughly 18.6% from roughly $8.5 million for the third
quarter of 2009.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest expense,
income taxes, depreciation and amortization, excluding impairment
of tangible and intangible assets, gain on sales of centers,
reorganization items, net and gain on purchase of notes payable.

Kip Hallman, InSight's President and CEO, stated, "I am pleased
that we successfully executed on a number of key strategic
initiatives intended to strengthen our retail center footprint,
improve our revenue cycle management, achieve better radiologist
alignment, and reduce our operating costs.  As a result, we were
able to achieve stable year over year Adjusted EBITDA and to
significantly improve our operating margins even in this very
challenging economic environment."

InSight will host a conference call to discuss results for its
fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2009, on
September 24, 2009, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.  Kip
Hallman, President and Chief Executive Officer, and Keith S.
Kelson, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, will

INTERGRAPH CORPORATION: Moody's Raises Corp. Family Rating to 'B1'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service raised the corporate family rating of
Intergraph Corporation to B1 from B2 due to continued improvement
in profitability, free cash flow, and reduction in leverage.

Intergraph's corporate family rating of B1 reflects Moody's
expectations that the company will continue to improve its
profitability, while maintaining moderate leverage, its positive
operating trends, and high customer retention rates (in excess of
90%).  The rating is supported by Intergraph's large recurring
revenue base from its multi-year contracts and large backlogs.
The rating is constrained by the company's shareholder friendly
strategy including the recent payment of a substantial cash
dividend.  The rating is further constrained by the highly
competitive market landscape which includes formidable large-scale
and better capitalized companies.

These ratings have been changed:

* Corporate family rating to B1 from B2
* Probability of default rating to B1 from B2

These loss given default point estimates were changed:

* $75 million Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility, Ba3, LGD3,
  33% from Ba3, LGD2, 26%

* $352 million Senior Secured First Lien, to Ba3, LGD3, 33% from
  Ba3, LGD2, 26%

* $200 million Senior Secured Second Lien, to B3, LGD5, 86% from
  B3, LGD5, 72%

The rating outlook is stable.

The most recent rating action was on December 19, 2007, when
Moody's upgraded ratings on senior secured debt.

Intergraph is a leading provider of spatial information management
software and systems with last twelve months ended June 30, 2009,
revenues of $782 million.  Headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama,
Intergraph was acquired by a consortium of private equity buyers
for $1.3 billion in 2006.

JABIL CIRCUIT: Fitch Puts Stable Outlook; Has 'BB+' Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
In a special report issued, Fitch Ratings says the credit quality
of rated U.S. electronics manufacturing services issuers has
improved as companies allocated cash proceeds from recent reduced
working capital requirements toward debt reduction.  Fitch's
Outlook for the sector is now Stable versus a Negative Outlook at
the beginning of the year.  Fitch expects moderate revenue growth
over the intermediate term coupled with marginal improvement in
profitability to further stabilize and improve credit metrics.  In
addition, liquidity remains strong for the sector with minimal
near-term maturities.

Results for the sector through the first half of 2009 were
predictably dour due to the overall economic environment but
exhibited signs of stability that the sector has been missing over
the past several years.  Specifically, it appears competitors have
maintained rational behavior in regard to pricing, which when
combined with reduced overall capacity in the sector has enabled
EMS vendors to maintain margins at or above levels of early 2007
despite declines of more than 20% in revenue.

Fitch believes management teams appear to be taking a disciplined
approach to their respective balance sheets and expects only
modest share repurchases, if any, over the next year in preference
to preserving liquidity to support increased working capital
requirements once normalized revenue growth returns.

There are credit concerns however, with a focus on the potential
for pricing pressure to negatively affect profitability and cash
flow going forward.  While Fitch believes pricing has remained
healthy so far through the downturn, several EMS vendors have
commented on increasing price competition in the industry.  In
addition, further revenue declines could lead to additional
restructuring activity, negatively affecting cash flow for several
quarters.

Companies covered in the EMS report are:

* Celestica Inc. -- Rated 'BB-', Stable Outlook;
* Flextronics International Ltd. -- Rated 'BB+', Stable Outlook;
* Jabil Circuit, Inc. -- Rated 'BB+', Positive Outlook;
* Sanmina-SCI Corp. -- Rated 'B', Stable Outlook.


JARDEN CORPORATION: Quarterly Dividend Won't Affect Moody's Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said Jarden's recently announced
implementation of a quarterly dividend does not affect its SGL 2
liquidity rating, B1 corporate family rating or stable outlook.

The last rating action on Jarden Corporation was an upgrade to
both its senior secured credit facility to Ba2 and to its
speculative grade liquidity rating to SGL 2 on May 20, 2009.

Jarden Corporation is a manufacturer and distributor of niche
consumer products used in and around the home.  The company's
primary segment include Consumer Solutions (which distributes
kitchen appliances, fire detection and suppressant systems, and
home vacuum packaging systems), Branded Consumables (which
distributes playing cards, arts and crafts, plastic cutlery and
firelogs), and Outdoor solutions (which distributes a variety of
outdoor leisure products under the K2, PureFishing, Coleman and
Campignaz brands).  Headquartered in Rye, NY the company reported
consolidated net sales of approximately $5.2 billion for the
twelve months ending June 30, 2009.


JBS USA: Moody's Gives Positive Outlook; Affirms 'B1' Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed the rating outlook of JBS USA,
LLC, to positive from stable based on the expected receipt of up
to $2.5 billion in new common equity to fund the acquisition of
Pilgrim's Pride Corporation and to reduce debt in the global
consolidated JBS enterprise.  Moody's affirmed the company's B1
senior unsecured debt rating.  The corporate family rating of
ultimate parent JBS S.A. is B1 and its outlook is positive.

Rating affirmed:

  -- $700 million senior unsecured Notes due 2014, and guaranteed
     by JBS S.A., at B1

JBS S.A., through subsidiary JBS USA Holdings, Inc., has agreed to
purchase 64% of Pilgrim's Pride Corporation, currently in
bankruptcy, for $800 million in cash.  The $800 million will be
funded with a portion of the $2.5 billion from the sale of up to
26.3% common equity interest in JBS USA Holdings, the immediate
parent of JBS USA, LLC, to a private investor.  Moody's expects
that Pilgrim's Pride planned $1.75 billion senior secured exit
facility will be standalone, with no guarantees or other support
from any JBS entity.  In the quarter ending June 27, 2009,
Pilgrim's Pride reported approximately $108.6 million in operating
profit, a significant improvement over the two prior quarters.
Stronger chicken prices following industry capacity reductions,
and lower feed-grain costs, have boosted the margins of domestic
chicken producers in 2009.

The change in outlook to positive at ultimate parent JBS S.A. is
based on the expectation that part of the excess proceeds from the
$2.5 billion equity issue will be applied to debt reduction within
the consolidated company.  The outlook change also recognizes the
benefits of further size, scale and diversification as well as the
significant synergy opportunities that transactions with Pilgrim's
Pride and also Bertin bring to JBS S.A.  Finally, Moody's further
anticipates that JBS USA Holdings will execute its plan for an
initial public offering in the near term.

With these transactions, ultimate parent JBS S.A. will become the
world's largest animal protein company.  JBS S.A. currently has
total management and ownership control of issuer JBS USA, LLC, and
its immediate holding company JBS USA Holdings, Inc. -- including
the ability to formulate strategy.  JBS S.A.'s ownership stake in
JBS USA Holdings will fall upon the issuance of $2.5 billion
equity to a private investor, and will drop further upon the
proposed IPO; but JBS S.A. is likely to remain the controlling
shareholder, and the Batista family is expected to be the
controlling shareholder of JBS S.A.  JBS S.A. guarantees LLC's
$400 million unrated 'ABL' expiring in November 2011 and the rated
Notes.  There is some intercompany debt owed by JBS USA Holdings
to the Brazilian parent JBS S.A.  LLC's ABL and its Notes allow
for the payment of dividends up to 50% of consolidated net income
as defined, and do not limit the amount of loans that Holdings or
LLC can make to JBS S.A.  The US businesses currently account for
the majority of JBS S.A.'s global consolidated operations.  For
these reasons, the B1 corporate family rating of JBS S.A. is the
basis for the rating for LLC's Notes.  The rating of the Notes is
also at the same level as JBS S.A.'s $300 million 10.5% senior
unsecured notes due 2016, which are guaranteed by JBS USA
Holdings, by LLC and by Swift Beef.

Moody's most recent rating action for JBS USA, LLC, on April 14,
2009, assigned a B1 rating to this issuer's Notes, with a stable
outlook.  On April 27, 2009, Moody's commented that the outbreaks
of influenza A (H1N1) had not at that time had an impact on the
rating of the issuer.

JBS USA, LLC, is one of the world's leading beef and pork
processing companies.  Its largest business segments are domestic
beef processing (70.1% of fiscal 2008 sales, pro forma for a full
year of Smithfield beef), domestic pork processing (16.1%) and
beef operations in Australia (13.8%).  Reported sales for the
twelve months ended June 30, 2009, were approximately
$13.4 billion.  JBS USA, LLC, is ultimately wholly owned by JBS
S.A., the world's largest beef producer in terms of slaughter
capacity.

KIRK CORP: Files Fourth Amended Reorganization Plan
---------------------------------------------------
Mary Ellen Podmolik at Chicago Tribune reports that Kirk Corp. has
filed a fourth amended reorganization plan, which would, among
other things, speed payments to JPMorgan Chase and cut the balloon
payment to the bank in 2024 to $15.6 million, from $38.2 million.

According to Chicago Tribune, the Plan wouldn't let Kirk use
JPMorgan Chase's funds to acquire new land or start new
developments without the bank's permission.

Chicago Tribune relates that Kirk President and CEO John Carroll
outlined on Friday the financial parts of the plan and how
JPMorgan Chase's lien would be protected.  The report states that
Scott Peltz -- the Company's financial adviser and managing
director of RSM McGladrey Inc. -- said that he believes the plan
is feasible, as it assumes a sluggish real estate market with
depressed home prices that slowly recover.  According to the
report, Kirk's plan calls for the construction of 87 homes in 2010
and increase that to almost 500 new homes in 2014.

Kirk Homes, an industry leader in sustainable development
initiatives and preservation of open space, is currently building
communities in Bolingbrook, Hoffman Estates, Lakemoor, and
Woodstock.  Kirk Corporation is based in Streamwood, Illinois.

Kirk voluntarily filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the Northern District of Illinois.


KNOLOGY INC: Proposed Amendment Won't Affect Moody's 'B1' Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said that Knology Inc.'s proposed
amendment and partial extension of its existing senior secured
credit facility would not have a meaningful impact on the
company's credit profile, and hence will not impact ratings,
including the B1 Corporate Family Rating, B2 Probability of
Default Rating and SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating.
Successful completion of the in-market transaction would extend
the maturity date for $250 million of Knology's $593 million in
term loans by three years, to June 2015.  The aggregate revolver
commitments would also be increased, as proposed, from $25 million
to $35 million.  The rating outlook remains stable.

The last rating action for Knology was on August 27, 2009 when
Moody's upgraded the company's CFR to B1 from B2 and its PDR to B2
from B3.

Knology, Inc., is an "overbuild" provider of video, high speed
data, and telephony services to approximately 231,050 video
subscribers.  These subscribers are primarily located in the
Southeast and portions of the Midwest.  The company generated
revenue of $419 million for twelve month period ended June 30,
2009.


KRONOS INT'L: Deutsche Bank Amends Loan, Sets New Covenants
-----------------------------------------------------------
Effective September 15, 2009, certain indirect operating
subsidiaries of Kronos International, Inc. -- Kronos Titan GmbH,
Kronos Europe S.A./N.V., Kronos Titan AS, Titania AS, Kronos Norge
AS, and Kronos Denmark ApS -- entered into a Fourth Amendment
Agreement Relating to a Facility Agreement dated June 25, 2002,
with Deutsche Bank AG, as mandated lead arranger, Deutsche Bank
Luxembourg S.A., as agent for the finance parties and security
agent for the secured parties, and the lenders participating in
the amended revolving credit facility.

The Amendment amends certain terms and conditions of the original
EUR80 million secured revolving credit facility between the
Obligors and the Lenders.

Among other things, the Amendment provides that until the Obligors
meet a specified ratio of net secured debt to earnings before
income taxes, interest and depreciation -- Original Leverage Test:

     1. borrowings outstanding under the Amended Revolving Credit
        Facility shall bear interest at LIBOR, or if a loan or
        liability is in euros, EURIBOR, plus a margin ranging from
        3.0% to 4.0%, depending on the amount of the outstanding
        loans and letters of credit as a percentage of the
        Lenders' total commitments under the Amended Revolving
        Credit Facility;

     2. the Obligors must comply with two new financial covenants
        (in both cases commencing with the period ending
        September 30, 2009):

        -- certain minimum earnings before income, taxes, interest
           and depreciation on a quarterly or a cumulative basis,
           and

        -- maintain a minimum ratio of net working capital to net
        financial debt;

     3. the Obligors must continue to comply with the existing
        required ratio of net financial debt to equity ratio; and

     4. with certain permitted exceptions (including without
        limitation payments made in relation to trade payables on
        their due date arising from contracts entered into on
        market terms and conditions), Kronos Worldwide, Inc., a
        parent corporation of the Company, and its subsidiaries
        (exclusive of the Obligors) cannot borrow money from the
        Obligors, and the Obligors cannot make payments to, give a
        guaranty or indemnity for the benefit or assume a
        liability of, Kronos Worldwide or such subsidiaries.

Once the Obligors have met the Original Leverage Test, the
Obligors will no longer be required to comply with the financial
covenants or comply with the limitation specified in paragraph 4,
and borrowings outstanding under the Amended Revolving Credit
Facility would then bear interest at LIBOR, or if a loan or
liability is in euros, EURIBOR, plus a margin of 1.75%.

Additionally, until the Obligors have complied with paragraph 2
and 3 through the quarterly period ending March 31, 2010 and
delivered evidence to the Agent that the Obligors' loss before
taxes for the financial year ending December 31, 2009 has not
exceeded $56 million, the maximum amount of outstanding loans and
letters of credit under the Amended Revolving Credit Facility
cannot exceed EUR51 million.

The Amended Revolving Credit Facility matures on May 26, 2011.
The facility is collateralized by the accounts receivable and the
inventories of the Borrowers and a limited pledge of all of the
other assets of Kronos Europe S.A./N.V.  The facility contains
representations, warranties and covenants customary in lending
transactions of this type.  In addition to the restrictive
covenants already described in this current report, certain other
covenants in the Amended Revolving Credit Facility restrict the
ability of the Borrowers to incur debt, incur liens, pay dividends
or merge or consolidate with, or sell or transfer all or
substantially all of their assets to, another entity.  Failure to
comply with the covenants contained in the Amended Revolving
Credit Facility could result in the acceleration of any
outstanding balance under the facility prior to its stated
maturity date.  In addition, any such outstanding balance under
the facility could be accelerated in the event that other debt or
obligations of the Borrowers or the Company were to be
accelerated.  The Company and the Borrowers have no material
relationship with the Lenders other than the Amended Revolving
Credit Facility described.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, lenders under a
revolving credit facility entered into by certain of Kronos
International's operating subsidiaries on August 31, 2009, waived
compliance with the required financial ratio of the Borrowers' net
secured debt to earnings before income taxes, interest and
depreciation under the loan agreement for the 12-month period
ending August 31, 2009.  Among other things, the waiver moved the
next required Debt Ratio measurement period to the 12-month period
ending September 15, 2009.  The Borrowers did not pay any fee to
the Lenders to obtain the waiver.

Worldwide, Inc.  The Company is a global producer and marketer of

LANDAMERICA FIN'L: Amer. Capital Wants FRBP 2004 Probe on LAC
-------------------------------------------------------------
Stephen K. Gallagher, Esq., at Venable LLP, in Vienna, Virginia,
relates that prior to filing its Chapter 11 petition, Debtor
LandAmerica Assessment Corporation was a defendant in a lawsuit
brought by American Capital, Ltd., for negligence and negligent
misrepresentation associated with property condition assessments
performed by LAC.  The lawsuit, docketed as American Capital v.
LandAmerica Assessment Corp., C.A. No. RWT-08- 3459, was
commenced in the Circuit Court of Montgomery County, Maryland,
and was subsequently removed to the United States District Court
for the District of Maryland on December 29, 2008.  Pursuant to
Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Lawsuit is presently
stayed.

Mr. Gallagher notes that as it underwrote two commercial loans
aggregating $19 million secured by two multi-family apartments in
Texas, Wachovia Bank retained LAC to perform property condition
assessments of both apartments.  Wachovia Bank sold the Loans
secured by the properties pursuant to a Mortgage Loan Purchase
Agreement and the Loans were later transferred into a trust.  The
beneficiaries of the Trust, including as American Capital, are
holders of multiple classes of mortgage pass-through
certificates.

As alleged in the American Capital Complaint, the property
condition reports identified $123,000 worth of immediate or
short-term repairs when, in fact, the apartments required more
than $2 million in immediate or short-term repairs, Mr. Gallagher
points out.

Mr. Gallagher tells the Court that American Capital attempted to
obtain from LAC, without success, information on whether any of
LAC's insurers may have an obligation to indemnify LAC for the
claims asserted by American Capital.  He avers that identifying
whether or not one or more of LAC's insurers may have an
obligation to indemnify LAC for the claims asserted by American
Capital is necessary for American Capital to fully understand its
claims against the estate, potential sources of recovery for its
claims, and to assess the need for the continuation of the
automatic stay.

Accordingly, American Capital seeks the Court's permission to
conduct an examination of LAC's designated representatives
pursuant to Rule 2004 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
Procedure, regarding the identity of LAC's insurers and the
potential obligation of one or more of LAC's insurers to
indemnify LAC for the claims asserted in the American Capital
Lawsuit.

American Capital also seeks the production of certain documents
prior to the Rule 2004 Examination.

LAC, however, objects to American Capital's request to the extent
that it seeks to discover privileged information, namely certain
communication between LAC and ACE Insurance.  LAC asserts that
not only are the communications privileged under the attorney-
client privilege, but the communications are also privileged from
discovery under the work product doctrine.

In response, American Capital contends that LAC's objection fails
to provide any details by which the Court can assess LAC's claims
of privilege.  It fails to provide a description of the documents
allegedly protected by attorney-client privilege, the attorneys
allegedly involved with those communications, the role the
attorneys played in relation to the communication, or even a
generalized description of the type of communications that LAC
asserts to be privileged, Mr. Gallagher says, on LAC's behalf.
Accordingly, LAC has failed to carry its burden justifying its
claim of privilege, American Capital argues.

LANDAMERICA FIN'L: Gets Court Nod for Deal With FNF & Underwriters
------------------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to Rule 9019(a) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
Procedure, Debtors LandAmerica Financial Group, Inc., and
Southland Title Corporation, Southland Title of Orange County,
and Southland Title of San Diego sought and obtained the Court's
permission for their entry into settlement agreement with
Fidelity National Financial, Inc., and Underwriting Companies
Commonwealth Land Title Insurance Company, United Capital Title
Insurance Company and Lawyers Title Insurance Corporation for the
resolution of claim the parties have against each other.

As previously reported, LFG, Fidelity National Title Insurance
Company, and Chicago Title Insurance Company entered into a Stock
Purchase Agreement in November 2008, whereby FNTIC and CTIC
purchased LFG's interests in Underwriters CLTIC, UCTIC, and LTIC.
FNF also purchased all outstanding capital stock of LoanCare
Servicing Center, Inc., and LC Insurance Agency, Inc., for
$16.3 million.  In connection with these Agreements, the Parties
have asserted claims against each other.

                         Parties' Claims

The Debtors asserted these claims against FNF and its affiliates:

  * Claims that FNF willfully and illegally misappropriated and
    interfered with the business of the Southland Entities and
    improperly hired substantially all of the entities'
    employees in violation of the terms of the SPA and
    applicable law;

  * Claims to recover certain third party notes and proceeds
    that were reported on the balance sheet of LFG or its
    retained subsidiaries; and

  * Claims for payment of principal and interest on account of
    Contractual adjustments to the calculation of UCTIC's net
    worth.

Likewise, FNF also asserted these claims against the Debtors:

  * Claims for services rendered to LFG pursuant to a Transition
    Services Agreement related to the stock sale of the
    Underwriters to FNF;

  * Claims against the Debtors for funds that were inadvertently
    deposited by employees of the Underwriters prior to the
    Petition Date into certain of the Debtors' bank accounts;

  * Unliquidated claims of at least $142.5 million on account of
    alleged breaches by LFG of certain representations contained
    in the SPA concerning material liabilities and existing or
    threatened claims, actions, or lawsuits and failed to
    reserve for those liabilities.  The Claim is designated as
    Claim No. 1804; and

  * Claim No. 1805 filed by FNF against LES asserting an
    unliquidated indemnity Claim against LES to the extent it
    suffers any losses due to litigation brought against FNF by
    certain customers of LES.

In addition, Dion W. Hayes, Esq., at McGuirewoods LLP, in
Richmond, Virginia, notes that although not required pursuant to
the Stock Purchase Agreement, on or prior to September 15, 2009,
LFG has the ability to make a unified loss election under Section
1.1502- 36(d)(6) of the Treasury Regulations to reduce its tax
basis in the stock of the Underwriters.  If various tax
requirements are satisfied, the Election could provide potential
value to FNF by allowing the Underwriters to potentially preserve
certain tax attributes that could offset taxable income in future
periods.

                         Global Settlement

In order to consensually resolve all Claims asserted among
themselves, the Debtors, FNF and the LFG Creditors Committee
began negotiations and ultimately reached an agreement in
principal regarding a global settlement of the Claims on
September 8, 2009.

The parties' Settlement Agreement generally provides that FNF
agree to pay LFG cash consideration in exchange for its agreement
to make the Election and all Parties would agree to globally
release their Claims against one another and their affiliates.
Specifically, the Parties agree that:

  (1) LFG will include with its timely filed U.S. federal income
      tax return for the tax year ended December 31, 2008, a
      Statement in which LFG elects pursuant to Section 1.1502-
      36(d)(6) of the Treasury Regulations to reduce the basis
      in the stock of each of the Underwriters to the extent of
      the Underwriter's respective "attribute reduction amount"
      associated with the transactions effected by the Stock
      Purchase Agreement.  The 2008 tax return to be filed by
      LFG will contemplate that after giving effect to the
      election provided in the Settlement Agreement, an
      aggregate amount of net operating losses of the
      Underwriters will be carried forward to the first year
      immediately following December 22, 2008 of not less than
      $174 million.

  (2) FNF will wire transfer to LFG $5.225 million as cash
      consideration for LFG making the Unified Loss Election.

  (3) FNF agrees that the Notes to the Settlement Agreement are
      assets of LFG.  FNF agrees to assign any of its rights and
      interests in the Notes and, except for $267,931 already
      collected by FNF's affiliate related to the Notes, any
      related proceeds to LFG, free and clear of any liens and
      encumbrances imposed by FNF and its affiliates.

Agreement is available for free at:

LE-NATURE'S INC: Court Won't Release Wachovia From RICO Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Donetta W. Ambrose of the U.S. District Court for the
Western District of Pennsylvania refused to release Wachovia Corp.
from a racketeering lawsuit filed by the liquidation trustee for
Le-Nature's Inc., alleging that the bank and others aided a
fraudulent scheme piloted by Le-Nature's former CEO, according to
Law360.

Headquartered in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, Le-Nature's Inc. --
http://www.le-natures.com/-- makes bottled waters, teas, juices
and nutritional drinks.  Its brands include Kettle Brewed Ice
Teas, Dazzler fruit juice drinks and lemonade, and AquaAde
vitamin-enriched water.

Four unsecured creditors of Le-Nature's filed an involuntary
Chapter 7 petition against the company on Nov. 1, 2006 (Bankr.
W.D. Pa. Case No. 06-25454).  On Nov. 6, 2006, two of Le-Nature's
subsidiaries, Le-Nature's Holdings Inc., and Tea Systems
International Inc., filed voluntary petitions for relief under
Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.  Judge McCullough converted Le

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Court Approves Bingham as Special Counsel
----------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court has authorized Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.
and its affiliates to employ Bingham McCutchen as special counsel,
nunc pro tunc to August 1, 2009.

In November 2008, the Debtors sought and obtained authority to
employ McKee Nelson LLP as special tax counsel.  In March 2009,
the Debtors also sought and obtained authority to employ McKee
for additional securitization and capital markets matters.

McKee combined with Bingham McCutchen LLP effective August 1,
2009.  As a result of the combination, all of the McKee attorneys
who previously represented the Debtors are now partners, counsel
or associates of Bingham, and they will continue to represent the
Debtors in these matters.

At the direction of the Debtors, Bingham has performed work on
the Debtors' tax controversy, securitization and capital markets
matters in good faith beginning on August 1, 2009, to properly
advance and protect the interests of the Debtors.

The Debtors will pay Bingham at its regular hourly rates for
legal and non-legal personnel, and reimburse the firm for all
reasonable and necessary expenses.  Bingham's hourly rate

     Paraprofessionals                 $215 to $305

Bingham will not charge rates in excess of rates previously
charged by McKee in connection with the Debtors' Chapter 11
cases, except to the extent any increases are a result of the
Firm's annual adjustments.

Rajiv Madan, Esq., a partner at Bingham McCutchen LLP, assures
the Court that his firm is a "disinterested person" as the term
is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code and does not
represent any interest adverse to the Debtors and their estates.

Mr. Madan discloses that as of June 30, 2009, McKee had billed
the Debtors approximately $6,305,000 for fees and expenses
related to tax matters and $311,900 for fees and expenses related
to securitization and capital markets matters.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Court Approves Citadel as Data Consultant
----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
authorized Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. to employ Citadel
Solutions LLC as their data consultant pursuant to a revised
interim agreement governing the employment of the firm.  The
revised interim agreement provides, among other things, that
neither LBHI nor Citadel will be held liable for damages caused
by any breach of the agreement.  The agreement also no longer
imposes a cap on damage claims for a breach of confidentiality by
Citadel.

Citadel Solutions LLC is being hired as data processing and
workflow automation consultant.  The Debtors tapped the firm to
provide help in utilizing the information technology
infrastructure, which they sold to Barclays Capital Inc. as part
of the sale of their North American business to the U.K. bank.

The Debtors use the IT infrastructure to provide internal support
to their businesses and to manage asset portfolios of their
clients.  After their employees, who were familiar with the
technology, transferred to Barclays as part of the sale, the
Debtors have depended on the U.K. bank to help them access the
infrastructure.

Richard Krasnow, Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New York,
says that outsourcing the Debtors' data processing and workflow
automation needs would help the Debtors reduce the costs of
administering their estates.

"By outsourcing their requirements to a third party such as
Citadel, the Debtors believe they can save approximately [$10
million] annually and have access to more efficient platform than
currently available to the Debtors," Mr. Krasnow says.

As consultant, Citadel is tasked to gather and review background
information to prepare for data processing and workflow
automation; establish account structure for the firm's services;
configure the Debtors' technology platform to facilitate
interaction with and for counterparties and providers; convert
certain live portfolio data; and train LBHI's staff to prepare
for live data processing.

Citadel will be paid at an hourly rate, which will be benchmarked
against the average cost for the type of services provided by
other administrators and service providers.  The firm's hourly
rate specifically ranges from $225 for staff members to $750 for
managing directors.  In addition, Citadel will be reimbursed of
its expenses.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Court OKs Settlement With 2 Units on Loans
-----------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. obtained approval from the
Bankruptcy Court of an agreement with two of its wholly-owned
subsidiaries, Lehman ALI Inc. and Lehman Re Ltd., to settle their
dispute over the sale of certain loans.

The dispute stemmed from the decision of Lehman Commercial Paper
Inc. and another unit to sell to Lehman Re certain residential
and commercial mortgage and mezzanine loans, which they purchased
from LBHI and Lehman ALI.  The move was criticized by LBHI and
Lehman ALI, both of which questioned the right of LCPI to sell
those loans.

Under the settlement, LBHI, Lehman ALI, and LCPI agreed to
execute and deliver to Lehman Re certain assignment documents
with respect to each loan and confirm that Lehman Re has been the
sole owner of the loans since September 17, 2008.  In return,
Lehman Re will assume the future funding obligations of LBHI,
Lehman ALI, and LCPI under the loans from and after September 17,
2008; pay $1 million to those companies; and grant them a right
of first offer to purchase some of the loans.  The companies also
agreed to release each other from all claims arising after
September 17, 2008.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Gets Court Nod of Settlement With Orange Beach
---------------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its affiliated debtors obtained
approval of a settlement agreement with Orange Beach Member LLC.

The Debtors entered into the agreement to resolve the terms of
the mezzanine loan in the sum of $10.3 million that they provided
to Orange Beach and its unit, CRIII LLC, to finance the purchase
of 20 individual parcels of land and the construction of a
residential condominium in Orange Beach, Alabama.  Orange Beach
and CRIII allegedly failed to pay off the loan.

The mezzanine loan remains in default and, LBHI estimates that
the land owned by CRIII is worth no more than $21.8 million,
which is far less than the $35 million senior loan held by Bank
of America to which the mezzanine loan is subordinate.  Orange
Beach availed of the senior loan to finance the construction in a
separate agreement with LaSalle Bank National Association.  In
contrast with the senior loan, the mezzanine loan is not secured
by a general guaranty of payment.

Under the settlement agreement, the Debtors and Orange Beach
agree that:

  (1) the land will be sold for $32.5 million upon the terms and
      conditions of a purchase agreement between CRIII and a
      third-party purchaser;

  (2) LBHI will release Orange Beach Member and certain of its
      affiliates from any further liability under their loan and
      net profit agreements; and

  (3) Orange Beach Member will pay $90,000 to LBHI to offset
      LBHI's consultant and legal fees.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: LBI Trustee Wants to Decide on Leases by Jan. 12
-----------------------------------------------------------------
James Giddens, trustee for the liquidation of Lehman Brothers
Inc.'s business, asks the Court to extend the deadline for
assuming or rejecting the company's executory contracts and
unexpired leases to January 12, 2010.

Mr. Giddens says the extension would give him enough time to
determine whether the assumption or assignment of LBI's contracts
and leases would be beneficial to the estate and advance the
purpose of the liquidation.

"Counterparties will not be prejudiced by this further extension
as their rights to seek an order to shorten the Trustee's time to
assume or reject any particular executory contract or unexpired
lease will be preserved," Mr. Giddens assures the Court.

The hearing to consider approval of the proposed extension is
scheduled for September 15, 2009.  Creditors and other concerned
parties have until September 10, 2009, to file their objections.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: New York's MTA Terminates Swaps
------------------------------------------------
Michael McDonald and Chris Dolmetsch at Bloomberg News report that
New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority paid $9.6 million
to Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. after the bank's bankruptcy
triggered the termination of two interest-rate swaps. "It just
breaks my heart that we had to throw $9 million down another Wall
Street rat hole," Doreen M. Frasca, member of the MTA's board,
said at a finance committee meeting Sept. 21 in the authority's
midtown Manhattan headquarters.

Bloomberg relates that the MTA, which operates the largest mass
transit system in the Americas, paid Lehman to end the agreements,
which were used to lock in fixed interest payments on variable-
rate bonds.  The state agency still has swaps with New York-based
bond insurer Ambac Financial Group Inc., New York-based American
International Group Inc. and Zurich-based UBS AG, according to
Finance Director Patrick McCoy.

Ms. Frasca, according to Bloomberg, said the agency shouldn't use
the transactions anymore because they "simply are not worth the
risks that are associated with them." In a swap two parties agree
to exchange payments tied to bonds, usually a fixed for a variable
one.  Lehman's bankruptcy last September triggered the termination
of thousands of such derivative contracts.

LYONDELL CHEMICAL: Reliance Industries Eyeing Assets
----------------------------------------------------
Reliance Industries is looking at acquiring some or all of
LyondellBasell's assets, Reuters reports, citing people familiar
with the matter.

According to CNBC-TV18, sources said that Reliance could make a
cash payment of $3.25 billion to Lyondell's vendors for the deal.
Reuters states that Lyondell spokesperson David Harpole said that
the Company is putting together a rights offering to provide the
Company with additional liquidity after it emerges from Chapter 11
bankruptcy.

LyondellBasell Industries is one of the world's largest polymers,
petrochemicals and fuels companies.  It is the global leader in
polyolefins technology, production and marketing; a pioneer in
propylene oxide and derivatives; and a significant producer of
fuels and refined products, including biofuels.  Through research
and development, LyondellBasell develops innovative materials and
technologies that deliver exceptional customer value and products
that improve quality of life for people around the world.
Headquartered in The Netherlands, LyondellBasell --
http://www.lyondellbasell.com/-- is privately owned by Access
Industries.

Basell AF and Lyondell Chemical Company merged operations in 2007
to form LyondellBasell Industries, the world's third largest
independent chemical company.  LyondellBasell became saddled with
debt as part of the US$12.7 billion merger.  On January 6, 2009,
LyondellBasell Industries' U.S. operations and one of its European
holding companies -- Basell Germany Holdings GmbH -- filed
voluntary petitions to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code to facilitate a restructuring of the company's
debts.  The case is In re Lyondell Chemical Company, et al.,
Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 09-10023).  Seventy-nine Lyondell
entities, including Equistar Chemicals, LP, Lyondell Chemical
Company, Millennium Chemicals Inc., and Wyatt Industries, Inc.
filed for Chapter 11.  In May 2009, one of the cases was dismissed
-- Case No. 09-10068 -- because it is duplicative of Case No. 09-
10040 relating to Debtor Glidden Latin America Holdings.

The Hon. Robert E. Gerber presides over the case.  Deryck A.
Palmer, Esq., at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, in New York,
serves as the Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.  Evercore Partners
serves as financial advisors, and Alix Partners and its subsidiary
AP Services LLC, serves as restructuring advisors.  AlixPartners'
Kevin M. McShea acts as the Debtors' Chief Restructuring Officer.
Clifford Chance LLP serves as restructuring advisors to the
European entities.  Lyondell Chemical estimated that consolidated
assets total US$27.12 billion and debts total US$19.34 billion as
of the bankruptcy filing date.

Lyondell has obtained approximately US$8 billion in DIP financing
to fund continuing operations.  The DIP financing includes two
credit agreements: a US$6.5 billion term loan, which comprises a
US$3.25 billion in new loans and a US$3.25 billion roll-up of
existing loans; and a US$1.57 billion asset-backed lending
facility.

Luxembourg-based LyondellBasell Industries AF S.C.A. and another
affiliate were voluntarily added to Lyondell Chemical's
reorganization filing under Chapter 11 on April 24, 2009, in order
to seek protection against claims by certain financial and U.S.
trade creditors.  On May 8, 2009, LyondellBasell Industries added
13 non-operating entities to Lyondell Chemical Company's
reorganization filing under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code.  All of the entities are U.S. companies and were added to
the original Chapter 11 filing for administrative purposes.  The
filings will have no impact on current business or operations as
none of the entities manufactures or sells products.

MAINLINE CONTRACTING: County Must Go to Bankr. Court to Get Paid
----------------------------------------------------------------
Alan Wagmeister at WFMY News 2 reports that the Forsyth County
Airport Commission must go to bankruptcy court to try to get tax
dollars back from Mainline Contracting, Inc.  According to WFMY
News, Smith Reynolds Airport had hired Mainline Contracting to
construct a runway safety area.  The Airport Commission of Forsyth
County said in a statement that it "has a contract with Mainline
Contracting, Inc., to construct a runway safety area at Smith
Reynolds Airport.  Although the Commission has not been contacted
by Mainline regarding this, the Commission has learned that
Mainline filed for bankruptcy on Tuesday, September 15, 2009.  The
Commission has no further information on this matter.  The
Commission engaged an attorney to represent the interests of the
commission in the bankruptcy proceedings,"

WFMY News relates that the North Carolina Department of
Transportation sent Mainline Contracting a letter on August 28,
2009, asking them to attend a meeting about subcontractors not
being paid.  After meeting with Mainline Contracting
representatives on September 9, NCDOT sent a letter to the Company
notifying that Mainline Contracting would be removed from the
bidder list, says the report.  The report states that NCDOT still
has one contract with Mainline Contracting for street improvements
in New Hanover County for more than $3.8 million, which wasn't
part of the recovery act.

Mainline Contracting, Inc., operates a construction company in
Durham, North Carolina.  The Company filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection on September 15, 2009 (Bankr. E.D. N.C. Case
No. 09-07927).  Jason L. Hendren, Esq., at Hendren & Malone, PLLC,
and Rebecca F. Redwine, Esq., and William P. Janvier, Esq., at
Everett, Gaskins, Hancock & Stevens, LLP, assist the Debtor in its
restructuring efforts.  The Company listed $10,000,001 to
$50,000,000 in assets and $10,000,001 to $50,000,000 in debts.

MECACHROME INTERNATIONAL: Stay Orders Extended Until December
-------------------------------------------------------------
Mecachrome International Inc. says it continues to operate its
business under Court protection provided pursuant to the
Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) and the safeguard
procedure (procedure de sauvegarde) in France for its French
subsidiaries.

The stay period under the initial CCAA Court order dated

Quebec Superior Court until December 18, 2009.  The observation
period (periode d'observation) under the safeguard procedure in
France has been extended by the French Court until December 12,
2009.

              About Mecachrome International Inc.

Mecachrome is a leader in the design, engineering, manufacture and

MGM MIRAGE: CityCenter to Open in December, Initiates Job Offers

MGM MIRAGE's CityCenter on September 21, 2009, embarked on the

"We're proud to celebrate this significant milestone as we begin

reality. When we open this December, demand created by CityCenter
will result in thousands of additional jobs at outside companies.
This is more than a collection of resorts; we see it as a beacon
of hope for a future of renewed economic vitality in Las Vegas."

Jobs will be filled at ARIA Resort & Casino, Vdara Hotel and
Crystals retail district.  Positions cover all departments
including food and beverage, hotel operations, casino operations,
entertainment, finance, human resources, facilities, security and
more. Crystals' retail and restaurant partners each will hire
their employees independently.  The Harmon, a luxury 400-room
boutique hotel, is slated to open at CityCenter in late 2010 and
will announce hiring plans at a later date.

CityCenter's Opening Dates:

   -- December 1 - Vdara Hotel

   -- December 16 - ARIA Resort & Casino

                        About MGM MIRAGE

Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, MGM MIRAGE (NYSE: MGM) --
http://www.mgmmirage.com/-- is a hotel and gaming company.  It
owns and operates 17 properties located in Nevada, Mississippi and
Michigan, and has investments in three other properties in Nevada,
New Jersey and Illinois.

At June 30, 2009, the Company had $22.4 billion in total assets,
including $1.07 billion in total current assets; $1.23 billion in
total current liabilities, $3.58 billion in deferred income taxes,
$12.3 billion in long-term debt, $186.7 million in other long-term
obligations; and $5.04 billion in stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

MGM Mirage continues to carry Standard & Poor's Ratings Services'
'CCC+' corporate credit ratings and Moody's Investors Service's
Caa2 Corporate Family Rating and Caa3 Probability of Default
Rating.

According to the Troubled Company Reporter on September 1, 2009,
S&P assigned its issue-level and recovery ratings to MGM MIRAGE's
proposed up to $500 million senior unsecured notes due 2016.  The
notes were rated 'CCC+' (at the same level as the corporate credit
rating on the company) with a recovery rating of '4', indicating
S&P's expectation of average (30%-50%) recovery for noteholders in
the event of a payment default.


MGM MIRAGE: Moody's Affirms Corporate Family Rating at 'Caa2'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed MGM MIRAGE's Caa2 Corporate
Family Rating and Caa3 Probability of Default Rating.  Moody's
also assigned a Caa2 rating to the company's new $475 million
11.375% senior unsecured notes due 2018.  Moody's also affirmed
MGM's SGL-4 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating.  The rating
outlook is negative.

Approximately half of the proceeds from the new note offering will
be used to repay amounts outstanding under MGM's senior credit
facility.  The remainder will be made available for general
corporate purposes.

MGM's Caa3 PDR reflects the company's high probability of default
given its substantial upcoming debt maturities, very high
leverage, and weak operating performance.  This would include the
possibility that it may pursue a transaction that Moody's would
deem to be a distressed exchange.  Pro forma debt-to-EBITDA is
about 8.4 times and likely to increase given the weak demand
trends on the Las Vegas Strip.  Additionally, almost half of the
company's $12.5 billion of outstanding debt -- including
$4.1 billion outstanding under the company's senior credit
facility -- matures in the next 24 months.  The PDR also
acknowledges the risk associated with the completion and ramp up
of MGM's City Center project.

The Caa2 CFR reflects the application of a fundamental evaluation
approach to estimate loss-given-default rather than the mean (50%)
family-level LGD estimate.  Given MGM's strong market share and
solid fundamental franchise within the gaming industry, Moody's
applies a 65% recovery estimate which results in the PDR (Caa3)
deviating from the CFR (Caa2) by one notch.

The Caa2 rating assigned to MGM's proposed senior unsecured notes
is level with the company's CFR as senior unsecured debt
represents the preponderance of the debt within the capital
structure.

The negative outlook anticipates that weak demand trends on the
Las Vegas Strip will continue to pressure MGM's operating margins
and credit metrics.  The Las Vegas Strip accounts for a
substantial majority of the company's revenue and EBITDA.  The
negative outlook also acknowledges MGM's SGL-4 Speculative Grade
Liquidity rating which indicates weak liquidity.

Rating assigned:

MGM MIRAGE

* 11.375% $475 million senior unsecured notes at Caa2 (LGD 3, 40%)

Ratings affirmed:

MGM MIRAGE

* Corporate Family Rating at Caa2
* Probability of Default Rating at Caa3
* Senior unsecured notes at Caa2 (LGD 3, 40%)
* Senior subordinated at Ca (LGD 5, 85%)
* Senior secured notes at B1 (LGD 1, 2%)

Mirage Resorts

* Senior unsecured notes at Caa2 (LGD 3, 40%)

Mandalay Resort Group

* Senior unsecured notes at Caa2 (LGD 3, 40%)
* Senior subordinated at Ca (LGD 5, 85%)

The last rating action for MGM occurred on May 13, 2009 when
Moody's affirmed the company's ratings and assigned a B1 rating to
its $1.5 billion senior secured guaranteed notes.

MGM MIRAGE owns and operates casino and hotel properties
throughout the US.  The company also has a 50% interest in
CityCenter Holdings, Inc., a mixed-use project on the Las Vegas
Strip and a 50% interest in MGM Grand Macau, a hotel-casino resort
in Macau S.A.R.  MGM generates approximately $7.2 billion of net
revenue annually.

billion and total deposits of about $1.5 billion.

New Frontier Bank was closed April 10, 2009, by the State Bank
Commissioner, by Order of the Banking Board of the Colorado
Division of Banking, which then appointed the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation as receiver.  A Deposit Insurance National
Bank of Greeley was created by the FDIC and opened for 30 days to
allow depositors at New Frontier time to open accounts at other
insured institutions.  At the time of closing, there were
approximately $150 million in insured deposits and $4 million in

NEWPAGE CORP: Prices $1.7 Bil. 11.375% Sr. Secured Notes Due 2014
-----------------------------------------------------------------
NewPage Corporation has priced its private placement offering of
$1.7 billion in aggregate principal amount of 11.375% Senior
Secured Notes due 2014.  The Notes will be sold at a price equal
to 93.996% of their face value with an effective yield of 13%.
The Notes Offering is expected to close on September 30, 2009,
subject to satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions.

The net proceeds of the Notes Offering, together with
approximately $5 million of borrowings under NewPage's revolving
credit facility, will be used to repay all amounts outstanding
under NewPage's Term Loan Credit and Guaranty Agreement, dated as
of December 21, 2007, as amended on September 11, 2009, and to pay
fees and expenses of the Notes Offering.

The Notes being offered by NewPage in the Notes Offering will not
be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and
may not be offered or sold in the United States absent
registration or an applicable exemption from registration
requirements.  The Notes are being offered only to qualified
institutional buyers under Rule 144A and outside the United States
in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.

On September 16, NewPage filed a Report on Form 8-K solely to
reflect the retroactive adjustments resulting from the adoption,
effective January 1, 2009, of Statement of Financial Accounting
Standards No. 160, Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated
Financial Statements-an amendment of Accounting Research Bulletin
No. 51 to the financial statements included in the Annual Report
on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008.  The Company
said, for the avoidance of doubt, it did not file the Form 8-K to
correct any error or omission in financial or other information
previously filed in the 2008 10-K.  The changes to the financial
statements reflect the retroactive adjustments to equity of
amounts related to the minority interests in the consolidated
balance sheets and the removal from other (income) expense of the
amounts of minority interest in the statements of operations.

A full-text copy of the Consolidated financial statements of
NewPage Corporation as of December 31, 2008 and 2007 and for the

NORTH VALLEY: Wants Access to Shopping Center's Postpetition Rents
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California
authorized, on an interim basis, North Valley Mall, LLC, to:

   -- use cash collateral through Nov. 30, 2009;

   -- receive postpetition rents of North Valley Plaza, a shopping
      center in Chico, California; and

   -- grant adequate protection to KeyBank, N.A.

A final hearing on the Debtor's cash collateral motion is set for
Oct. 28, 2009, at 11:00 a.m. Courtroom 5B, 411 W Fourth St., Santa
Ana, California.

The Debtor is party to a construction loan with KeyBank, N.A.,
which provided for an original principal $18.5 million secured by
the property and an assignment of rents.  The loan was later
increased to $26.25 million.

The Debtor also executed a lockbox account agreement, whereby the
property's tenants were to pay rent directly into a lockbox
account.

David Klein, a partner at Parks Diversified, the property manager
of Plaza, the real property of the Debtor, told the Court that
KeyBank swept the Lockbox, without notice to the Debtor,
withdrawing all but $36,000.

The Debtor requires access to the cash collateral to pay necessary
expenses associated with the maintenance and management of its
principal property.

As adequate protection, KeyBank will receive perfected replacement
liens in the Debtor's postpetition assets and proceeds there of,
to the same extent, validity, and priority as the liens held by
KeyBank as of the petition date.  KeyBank will also receive
payments that are based on an interest rate of $4%, which is above
the current non-default contract rate.

The Debtor relates that KeyBank is protected by a substantial
equity cushion in the property which has an appraisal value of
$28.25 million.  The outstanding prinicpal amount of the loan is
$24.45 million, leaving an equity of $3.79 million and an equity
cushion of $13.40%.

Dana Point, California-based North Valley Mall, LLC, Chapter 11 on
Sept. 2, 2009 (Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 09-19346).  Jeffrey I.
Golden, Esq., and Hutchlson B. Meltzer, Esq., at Weiland, Golden,
Smiley, Wang Ekvall & Strok, LLP, represents the Debtor in its
restructuring effort.  In its petition, the Debtor listed assets
and debts both ranging from $10,000,001 to $50,000,000.


NPOT PARTNERS: Can Initially Use Cash Securing Lender Group Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas
authorized, on an interim basis, NPOT Partners I, LP, to:

   -- use cash securing repayment of loan with lender group and
      Genesis Financial Services Fund, LLC; and

   -- grant adequate protection to the lender group and Genesis.

The Debtor is party to a transaction with First Bank as agent for
a lender group consisting of First Bank, Texas Capital Bank,
National Association and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association.
The lender group provided a $50 million loan to the Debtor.  Based
on the calculations of the Debtor, the lender group is owed
$29 million.

The Debtor is also party to an agreement with Genesis for an
advance of the principal amount of $5 million.  The Debtor related
that the loan is secured.  The Debtor added that the rights of
Genesis in the collateral are subordinated to the rights of the
lender group.

The Debtor related that it needed the use of cash collateral to
pay certain expenses in the operation of its business.

To partially protect the interest of the Lender Group and Genesis
in the cash collateral, the Debtor will grant replacement liens in
the same order of priority as prepetition liens.

                        First Bank Objects

First Bank, Agent, a secured creditor, objected to the Debtor's
cash collateral motion, relating that:

   -- it was unclear to First Bank why the Debtor is in
      Chapter 11;

   -- the actual value of the assets of the estate may well be
      less than the indebtedness owed to First Bank and there may
      be no equity cushion;

   -- only the Debtor and its principals: Shawn Coker and Johnny
      V. Pannell, benefited from the bankruptcy;

   -- a short review of the relevant background is appropriate.

Colleyville, Texas-based NPOT Partners I, LP, filed for Chapter 11
on Aug. 31, 2009 (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 09-45412).  Mark
Joseph Petrocchi, Esq., at Griffith, Jay & Michel, LLP, represents
the Debtor in its restructuring effort.  The Debtor did not file a
list of its 20 largest unsecured creditors when it filed its
petition.  In its petition, the Debtor listed $10,000,001 to
$50,000,000 in assets and $500,001 to $1,000,000 in debts.


OSAGE EXPLORATION: Halts Participation in Rosa Blanca Concession
----------------------------------------------------------------
Osage Exploration and Development, Inc., has terminated its
participation in the Rosa Blanca block in Colombia.  Osage
Exploration and Development, Inc. Sucursal Colombia, the Colombian
branch of Osage Exploration and Development entered into the Rosa
Blanca Block Settlement Agreement on September 15, 2009, with Gold
Oil, PLC Sucursal Colombia, EMPESA, SA and Lewis Energy Colombia,
Inc.

After drilling the RB 1 well without finding producible
hydrocarbons in Phase One of its exploration contract at Rosa
Blanca and analyzing the corrected seismic data, Osage believes
that it is unlikely that the additional structures on the property
will be productive.  Osage Exploration and Development, Inc. and
Lewis Energy Colombia have negotiated a release with the remaining
partners from continuing on in the ANH exploration contract, and
will have no further obligations on the concession.

"Osage is continuing to seek to upgrade its inventory of Colombian
projects, which is anchored by our ownership of the Guaduas Field
and pipeline.  Colombia is clearly one of the pre-eminent places
to explore for oil and gas given the attractive fiscal and royalty
terms, the relatively large percentage of under explored basin
acreage, and the well developed industry infrastructure," stated
Kim Bradford, President and CEO.

fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009 and down 21% year-over-year.

On a GAAP basis, net loss applicable to common stockholders for
the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 was ($164.5) million, or
($1.17) per diluted common share.  This compares to a net loss
applicable to common stockholders for the first quarter of fiscal
year 2009 of ($41.9) million, or ($0.39) per diluted common share.

The Company's net loss applicable to common stockholders on a GAAP
basis reflects new accounting guidance, effective this quarter,
which requires the anti-dilutive provisions of Palm's series C
preferred shares and related warrants to be treated as derivatives
for financial reporting purposes.  The fair value of the
derivatives were estimated as of the first day of fiscal year 2010
and are marked to market on a quarterly basis, with any change in
value reflected in the company's financial results for the period.

As of August 28, 2009, Palm recorded a $235.0 million current
liability related to its series C derivatives.  A $27.4 million
non-cash loss on series C derivatives was reflected in the
company's financial results.  With regard to the series C
derivatives, any future increases in Palm's stock price from
period to period will be reflected as a non-cash loss on these
derivatives in the company's financial results, and any future
decreases will be reflected as a non-cash gain in the company's
financial results.

Non-GAAP Net Loss for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 was
($13.6) million, or ($0.10) per diluted share.  This compares to a
non-GAAP Net Loss for the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 of
($12.8) million, or ($0.12) per diluted share.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or
EBITDA, for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 totaled
($149.2) million.  EBITDA, adjusted to exclude the impact of
subscription accounting, stock-based compensation, net other
income (expense), restructuring charges (adjustments), an
impairment of non-current auction rate securities and a loss on
series C derivatives, or Adjusted EBITDA, totaled ($2.0) million.

Palm's quarterly operating results are, and will continue to be,
significantly impacted by the timing and size of product launches.
The company's non-GAAP first quarter results reflected the scale
of the launch of Palm Pre with Sprint at the beginning of the
quarter and the subsequent launch of Palm Pre with Bell Mobility
in Canada.  Due to the timing and scale of expected product
launches in Palm's second fiscal quarter compared to those which
took place in Palm's first fiscal quarter, and due to lower
anticipated demand for legacy products, the company expects non-
GAAP Adjusted Revenues for its second quarter of fiscal year 2010
to be between $240 million and $270 million.

The Company's planned product launches with additional carriers in
the second half of its fiscal year, together with continuing sales
from products launched in the first half of its fiscal year, are
expected to yield stronger operating performance, resulting in
non-GAAP Adjusted Revenues for fiscal year 2010 of $1.6 billion to
$1.8 billion.

PALM INC: S&P Puts 'CCC' Corp. Rating on CreditWatch Positive
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it placed its 'CCC'
corporate credit rating and other ratings on Palm Inc. on
CreditWatch with positive implications, following the company's
announcement that it intends to sell approximately $231 million in
new common stock.  Proceeds of the offering, if successful, would
materially improve the company's liquidity.

"The CreditWatch listing reflects the company's announcement that
it plans to sell $231 million in new common stock," said Standard
& Poor's credit analyst Bruce Hyman.  The planned offering would
provide additional working capital to support anticipated working
capital expansion, and for other corporate purposes.

"We will review Palm's product plans, competitive position and
financial profile to resolve the CreditWatch," said Mr.  Hyman,
"and could raise the corporate credit rating by as much as two
notches, to 'B-'."


PARMALAT SPA: NY Judge Clears Grant Thornton from Bondi Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
Winston & Strawn LLP on September 18 won a complete victory by
defeating a multibillion dollar lawsuit against its client, US
audit firm Grant Thornton LLP.  The lawsuit was filed by Enrico
Bondi, the Extraordinary Commissioner of the bankruptcy estate of
Parmalat, the Italian dairy giant that collapsed in late 2003 as a
result of a massive fraud.

Grant Thornton LLP, the US member firm of Grant Thornton
International, did not audit Parmalat.  Dr. Bondi's lawsuit sought
to hold Grant Thornton LLP responsible for audits of Parmalat
conducted by what was at the time the Italian member firm of Grant
Thornton International.  That Italian firm was expelled several
years ago from Grant Thornton International.

Judge Lewis Kaplan of the United States District Court for the
Southern District of New York granted summary judgment in favor of
Grant Thornton LLP, ending the entire lawsuit.  Judge Kaplan ruled
that Dr. Bondi could not recover against Grant Thornton LLP or
Grant Thornton International because Parmalat's own officers were
responsible for the fraud.

Dr. Bondi also sued another auditing firm and various banks, some
of which settled the allegations against them for $100 million and
more.  As a result of the ruling, neither Grant Thornton LLP nor
Grant Thornton International will be responsible for paying any
amount of damages to Dr. Bondi or Parmalat.

Bruce Braun, Esq., led the Winston & Strawn team.  Linda Coberly,
Esq., argued the motion, which she briefed with associate William
Ferranti, Esq., that led to the dismissal.  Partners Scott
Glauberman, Esq., and Andrew DeVooght, Esq., were preparing to
take the case to trial, together with associates Chris Weller,
Esq., Theodore Polley, Esq., Kristin Mace, Esq., William Walsh,
Esq., and Jessica Sturgeon, Esq.  Numerous other Winston & Strawn
attorneys, paralegals, and staff contributed to the win.

PARMALAT SPA: Court Dismisses Lawsuit Against Bank of America
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Associated Press reports that U.S. District Judge Lewis A.
Kaplan has dismissed lawsuits seeking to hold Bank of America
Corp. and Grant Thornton International responsible in Parmalat's
collapse.

According to The AP, Judge Kaplan said that there is no reliable
evidence that "miscreant corporate officials stole with the
defendants' culpable participation".  There was no evidence that
the companies knew about the $18 billion collapse in 2003, the
report says, citing Judge Kaplan.

Parmalat said in a statement that it believed the written ruling
was erroneous and said it will appeal.

Parmalat said that it will appeal the court's decision, The AP

PERPETUA HOLDINGS: Dispute Over Burr Oak Cemetery Continues
-----------------------------------------------------------
Maudlyne Ihejirika at Chicago Sun-Times reports that the dispute
over Burr Oak Cemetery continues after Perpetua Holdings' lawyers
and the Illinois attorney general's office failed to reach an
agreement on future management of the graveyard.  Sun-Times states
that U.S. Judge Pamela Hollis had given the parties an hour to
work on an agreement.  Lawyers of plaintiffs with loved ones
buried at Burr Oaks said that they are focusing on $6 million in
trust funds held by Perpetua Holdings, a loan from the Pacesetter
investment firm, and on what insurance and assets the Debtor has
available to pay claims, Sun-Times says.

Arizona-based Perpetua Holdings has owned Burr Oak since 2001.
Perpetua also owns Cedar Park Cemetery in Calumet Park.  The
Company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, listing
$1 million to $10 million in liabilities owed to up to 200
creditors.

PETER MATT: Wants Access to FCC and Capstone Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------
Peter Matt & Co., Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York for authority to:

   -- use cash collateral of First Capital Corp. and Capstone
      Business Credit, LLC; and

   -- grant adequate protection to FCC.

The Debtor is indebted to FCC, pursuant to a loan and security
agreement dated Aug. 25, 2008, in the amount of $3.41 million,
plus interest, fees, cost, expenses.  The Debtor is also indebted
to Capstone in the amount of $19.50 million.

The Debtor solicited necessary financing from various sources.
The agreement with its current secured lender, FCC, broke down
because FCC changed a material term of the proposed agreement at
the last moment.  The Debtor added that the U.S. Trustee also
advised the Debtor's counsel that the agreement was overreaching
and extremely unfair to the Debtor.

The Debtor requires access to the cash collateral to operate its
business' daily operations.

As adequate protection, the Debtor proposes to grant FCC with (a)
a continuing, valid, binding, enforceable and automatically
perfected postpetition first priority security interest in the
prepetition collateral; and (b) a replacement lien on all of the
Debtor's postpetition assets.  The adequate protection liens are
junior to the carve-out for certain expenses.

                            FCC Objects

FCC, LLC, a secured lender, objected to the Debtor's cash
collateral motion relating that:

   -- FCC will not be adequately protected; and

   -- the Debtor, faced with the secured claims of both FCC and
      its subordinated secured lender Capstone and hundreds of
      thousands of dollars in unsecured wage and vendor claims,
      has no equity in the property.  FCC added that the
      $3.78 million value of the Debtor's potential inventory
      liquidation was based on November 2008 assumptions that are
      likely no longer viable in today's economic climate.

Otterbourg, Steindler, Houston & Rosen, P.C., represents FCC, LLC.

                   About Peter Matt & Co., Inc.

Armonk, New York-based Peter Matt & Co., Inc., filed for Chapter

PHILADELPHIA NEWSPAPERS: Hearing on Auction Moved to October 1
--------------------------------------------------------------
Sophia Pearson at Bloomberg News reports that Philadelphia
Newspapers LLC's hearing seeking bankruptcy court approval to sell
its assets at an October auction has been delayed for a second
time.  Company attorney Lawrence McMichael told Chief U.S.
Bankruptcy Judge Stephen Raslavich during a brief hearing on
Sept. 21 that Philadelphia Newspapers and its creditors agreed to
postpone the hearing until Oct. 1 in order to continue
negotiations related to the sale.

The Company is contemplating an October 22 auction, wherein a
group of local investors, including Bruce E. Toll, would be lead
bidder for its business.  The Debtors have filed a proposed
Chapter 11 plan built around the sale of the business to Mr. Toll
or to the highest bidder.

Philadelphia Newspapers filed a Chapter 11 plan of reorganization
on August 20.  The Plan provides for the sale of substantially all
of the Debtors' assets to Mr. Toll-led Philly Papers, LLC, absent
higher and better bids at an auction.  Under the deal, Philly
Papers is expected to pay over $41,000,000, after payment of
approximately $6,000,000 in administrative and priority claims.

According to the disclosure statement explaining the Plan, holders
of secured claims, including $66 million, senior secured claims,
will recover 100 cents on the dollar.  Holders of $350 million
prepetition unsecured debt claims will recover less than 1% of
their claims.  Holders of prepetition unsecured trade claims will
recover up to 6%.

Senior lenders, including CIT Group Inc., have proposed their own
reorganization plan that would allow the Company to emerge from
bankruptcy with about $60 million in debt.  Led by Citizens
Bank of Pennsylvania, as agent, senior lenders would own about
95% of the Company with the remainder going to unsecured mezzanine
debt holders.  Other unsecured creditors will recover up to 10% of
their claims in cash.

PILGRIM'S PRIDE: Has Deal With Mt. Pleasant on Taxes
----------------------------------------------------
Pilgrim's Pride Inc. and the Mount Pleasant, Texas, School
District have agreed to resolve their dispute with respect to the
payment of the Debtors' 2008 property taxes.

Pursuant to a stipulation, the Parties have agreed that:

* The Debtors owe MPISD $1,073,888 for all taxes of 2008,
   except for interest penalties.

* The Debtors will pay MPISD (a) $698,027 within seven days of
   MPISD's execution of the Stipulation; and (b) 375,861 within
   30 days from the date of the First Payment.

* MPISD does not waive any right to pursue a claim or to
   receive penalties and interest, for 2008 taxes, and the
   Debtors do not waive their right to object to a claim or
   to receive penalties or interest or to appeal an order
   granting the penalties or interest.

* If interest is awarded, the interest will accrue from
   February 1, 2009 to the date of payment and will be payable
   within 30 days from the date of an Order awarding the
   interest.

* The First and Second Payments will be in full satisfaction
   of all property taxes for 2008, except penalties and
   interest for 2008.

On June 30, 2009, Pilgrim's Pride Corporation paid the First
Payment and Second Payment in full, and accordingly the Debtors
believe the terms of the Stipulation have been satisfied.
However, out of an abundance of caution, the Debtors sought the
approval of the Stipulation by the Court.

The Debtors then sought and obtained the Court's approval of the
Stipulation between the Debtors and Mount Pleasant Independent
School District with respect to the Debtors' settlement of their
2008 Property Taxes.

PORTA SYSTEMS: Issues $1,401,522 Promissory Note to Cheyne
----------------------------------------------------------
Porta Systems Corp. on September 11, 2009, issued its promissory
note dated as of September 1, 2009, payable to Cheyne Special
Situations Fund, LP, the holder of the Company's senior debt, in
the principal amount of $1,401,522.

The note supersedes and replaces in its entirety the Company's
note dated August 1, 2009 payable to Cheyne in the principal
amount of $1,452,477.  The reduced principal amount reflects a
payment of principal made by the Company in August.  The note,
which represents a further amendment to the Company's working
capital note, is senior debt and secured by substantially all of
the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries.  The note reduces
the monthly payments from $125,000 to $62,500 and extends the
maturity date to December 31, 2010.

Porta Systems said in an August 2009 regulatory filing it expects
to continue to engage in negotiations to divest assets.

"During the past several years we have, on a number of occasions,
engaged in negotiations with respect to the sale of one or more of
our divisions.  None of our discussions resulted in an agreement.
We expect to continue to engage in such negotiations in the
future," Porta Systems said.

"We cannot give any assurance that we would be able to effect any
sale of our business or that such a sale would not be part of
bankruptcy reorganization," Porta Systems added.  "Further, our
senior debt is secured by a lien on substantially all of our and
our subsidiaries' assets, and substantially all, if not all, of
the proceeds from any sale may be required to be paid to our debt
holders, principally the holder of our senior debt.

Porta Systems said its only source of funds other than normal
operations is its senior lender, Cheyne Special Situations Fund,
L.P.  Porta Systems noted Cheyne has advised it would not advance
new funds to the Company.

"If we are not able to generate sufficient revenue to enable us to
meet our obligations or obtain financing from Cheyne, we would not
be able to continue in business, and it would be likely that we
would seek protection under the Bankruptcy Code," Porta Systems
said.

On July 31, 2008, the Company implemented a trouble debt
restructuring plan which restructured and reduced its senior and
subordinated debt.  As part of the debt restructuring, the Company
issued to Cheyne, as the holder of the senior debt, 7,038,236
shares of common stock, which represents 70% of the outstanding

PREMIER GOLF: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
--------------------------------------------------------
LLC Premier Golf Missouri has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District
of Missouri.

Kansas City Business Journal reports that LLC Premier was tagged
with a $1.6 million bill for five years' worth of unmetered water
from the Kansas City Water Services Department.  Court documents
say that LLC Premier listed more than 200 creditors, saying it had
$7.78 million in liabilities against $10 million to $50 million in
assets, which include $7.53 million in real estate and personal
property.

Mark Simpson, co-developer of the residential property, said in a
statement, "There is no financial relationship between the
residential developers and the Staley Farms Golf Club.  As the
developer of Staley Farms community, we are confident that the
bankruptcy court will diligently pursue a prompt resolution that
will allow the golf club to continue to maintain their facilities
and golf course, provide services to their membership and approve
a reorganization plan for the club to leave it in a stronger
financial position once the case is finalized."

LLC Premier Golf Missouri is a private golf course in Kansas City,
Missouri.  It is owned by KAH Legacy Development LLC.


PROTOSTAR LTD: Agrees to Return Erroneous Wire Transfer
-------------------------------------------------------
ProtoStar Ltd. has agreed to return an erroneous transfer made by
a former customer just days after ProtoStar's bankruptcy filing.

On July 28, ProtoStar notified Antrix Corporation Ltd. that it was
terminating an agreement effective July 31, 2009, and consequently
it would not be providing any services for July.  On Aug. 4,
Antrix wire transferred $262,500 to ProtoStar under the contract
for services ProtoStar would have provided in August.  Saying that
it is not entitled to the payment, ProtoStar has submitted to the
Court a stipulation providing for its return of the money to
Antrix.  The stipulation is scheduled for hearing on October 22.

                       About ProtoStar Ltd.

Hamilton, HM EX, Bermuda-based ProtoStar Ltd. is a satellite
operator formed in 2005 to acquire, modify, launch and operate
high-power geostationary communication satellites for direct-to-
home satellite television and broadband internet access across the
Asia-Pacific region.

The Company and its affiliates filed for Chapter 11 on July 29,
2009 (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 09-12659.)  The Debtor selected
Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP as Delaware counsel; Law Firm of
Appleby as their Bermuda counsel; UBS Securities LLC as financial
advisor & investment banker and Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as
claims and noticing agent.  In their petition, the Debtors listed
between US$100 million and US$500 million each in assets and
debts.  As of December 31, 2008, ProtoStar's consolidated
financial statements, which include non-debtor affiliates, showed
total assets of US$463,000,000 against debts of US$528,000,000.


PROTOSTAR LTD: PLDT Looking for $27.5MM Deposit, Wants Probe
------------------------------------------------------------
ProtoStar Ltd. is contesting a motion by Philippine Long Distance
Telephone Company to conduct a probe under F.R.B.P. Rule 2004.

The Debtor says that PLDT's proposal would only delay its ongoing
sale process.  ProtoStar will hold an Oct. 14 auction for the sale
of its two satellites and other assets.

On August 28, 2009, PLDT filed a motion, seeking discovery
relating to "facts and circumstances" relating to PLDT's deals
with ProtoStar and the transfer of $27.5 million from PLDT to the
Debtors on Sept. 17, 2008.  PLDT says it requires information to
determine whether it possesses certain causes of action or claims
against the Debtors and third parties, including the Debtors'
officers and directors as well as alleged secured lenders.

The Debtors operate satellites that provide direct-to-home
satellite television and broadband Internet access across the
Asia-Pacific region.  PLDT is a leading telecommunications
provider in the Philippines.  In September 2008, the parties
entered into an agreement where ProtoStar was to provide PLDT with
access to certain transponders on the ProtoStar I Satellite,
thereby providing satellite coverage in specific areas, for a
seven-year term beginning in 2011.  As part of the deal, PLDT gave
a $27.5 million deposit in September 2008.

ProtoStar in response said that that the PLDT's request for
expedited discovery is overbroad and abusive.  It did not say
whether the Priority Deposit is intact.  It said PLDT is an
unsecured creditor.  Unsecured creditors would have to wait in
line with other equally ranked creditors before receiving pro rata
distributions of their claims pursuant to a Chapter 11 plan.
Secured creditors would have to be paid first before unsecured
creditors are paid.

The Bankruptcy Court has set October 14, 2010, as the general
claims bar date.  Proofs of claim by governmental units are due
January 25, 2010.

Meanwhile the Bankruptcy Court entered an order authorizing the
debtors to hire UBS Securities LLC as investment banker and
financial advisor.

QUEST RESOURCE: RBC Loan Amendment Provides Much Needed Liquidity
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Quest Resource Corporation entered into a Second Amended and
Restated Credit Agreement, as the borrower, with Royal Bank of
Canada, as administrative agent, collateral agent and lender.  The
Credit Agreement was amended to, among other things, add a new
$8 million revolving credit facility to provide QRCP the liquidity
necessary to fund its Marcellus Shale development projects in
Appalachia and pay overhead, working capital, and other corporate
costs prior to the expected completion of its recombination with
Quest Energy Partners, L.P. and Quest Midstream Partners, L.P.,
into a new, yet to be named, publicly traded corporation --
NewGasCo.

NewGasCo's strategy will be to create shareholder value through
the efficient development of unconventional resource plays,
including coalbed methane in the Cherokee Basin of southeast
Kansas and northeast Oklahoma and the Marcellus Shale in the
Appalachian Basin.  NewGasCo will remain focused on reducing
operating and overhead costs and anticipates significant first
year overhead cost savings, primarily as the result of the
simplified structure.

While QRCP continues to work towards completion of the
recombination before year-end, it remains subject to the
satisfaction of a number of conditions, including, among others,
the arrangement of one or more satisfactory credit facilities for
NewGasCo, the approval of the transaction by the stockholders of
QRCP and the unitholders of QELP and QMLP, and consents from each
entity's existing lenders.  There can be no assurance that these
conditions will be met or that the recombination will occur.

                      Amended RBC Facility

QRCP entered into the Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement
with Royal Bank of Canada on September 11, 2009.

Royal Bank of Canada                    A new revolving line of
Loans and Commitments                  credit was added
as of Restatement Date:                permitting borrowings
                                        of up to an initial
Original Term Loan      $28,250,000    maximum amount of
Interest Deferral Loan     $862,785    $5.6 million until
PIK Loan                   $282,500    November 30, 2009,
Second PIK Loan             $25,000    and thereafter,
Revolving O&G Dev't      $8,000,000    provided no event of
   Loan Commitment                      default exists, up to
                         -----------    a maximum of
        TOTAL            $37,420,285    $8.0 million.  The
                                        proceeds of this new
                                        revolving line of
credit will be used primarily to fund development costs associated
with two new horizontal wells and one vertical well in Wetzel
County, West Virginia, and one new vertical well in Lewis County,
West Virginia and for general and administrative expenses, working
capital and other corporate purposes.  The maturity date of the
revolving line of credit is July 11, 2010.

The maturity date of the existing term loan was extended from July
11, 2010 to January 11, 2012.  The quarterly principal payments of
$1.5 million due September 30, 2009, December 31, 2009, March 31,
2010 and June 30, 2010 were effectively deferred until July 11,
2010 at which time all $6 million will be due.  Thereafter, the
Company will be required to make a principal repayment of $1.5
million at the end of each calendar quarter until maturity.

In addition to the revolving line of credit and the term loan,
there are three promissory notes that have been issued under the
Credit Agreement:

     -- a $862,785.96 interest deferral note dated June 30, 2009
        (representing outstanding due and unpaid interest on the
        term loan),

     -- a $282,500 payment-in-kind note dated May 29, 2009
        (representing a 1% amendment fee payable by the Company in
        connection with the fourth amendment to the Company's
        existing credit facility), and

     -- a second $25,000 payment-in-kind note dated June 30, 2009
        (representing an amendment fee payable by the Company in
        connection with the fifth amendment to the existing credit
        facility).

The maturity date of the interest deferral note was extended to
July 11, 2010.  The maturity dates of the two payment-in-kind
notes remained July 11, 2010.

The revolving line of credit, term loan, interest deferral note
and the two payment-in-kind notes may be prepaid at any time
without any premium or penalty.

The interest rate on the term loan, the interest deferral note and
the two payment-in-kind notes was increased from the base rate
plus 9% to the base rate plus 10%. The base rate is generally the
higher of the federal funds rate plus 0.50% or RBC's prime rate.
The "eurodollar" interest rate option was removed from the Credit
Agreement.  Payment of interest on these notes may be deferred
until July 11, 2010.  Deferred and unpaid interest will bear
interest at the base rate plus 10%, compounded quarterly.

The revolving line of credit is non-interest bearing. Instead, the
Company is required to pay to the lenders a facility fee equal to
$2.0 million on July 11, 2010.  The facility fee will be
proportionately reduced if all of the following facility fee
reduction conditions are satisfied: (i) repayment and termination
by the Company of the revolving line of credit, (ii) payment of
the deferred quarterly principal payments under the term loan,
(iii) repayment of the interest deferral note and the two payment-
in-kind notes and (iv) payment of any deferred interest under the
term loan, the interest deferral note and the two payment-in-kind
notes.

In connection with the revolving line of credit, each of Quest
Eastern Resource LLC and Quest Oil & Gas, LLC, assigned to the
lenders an overriding royalty interest in the oil and gas
properties owned by Quest Eastern Resource LLC or Quest Oil & Gas,
LLC, equal in the aggregate to 2% of its respective working
interest (plus royalty interest, if any), proportionately reduced,
in its respective oil and gas properties.  Each lender will
reconvey the overriding royalty interest (and any accrued payments
owing to such lender) if on or before July 11, 2010, the facility
fee reduction conditions discussed are satisfied and the term loan
(together with accrued and unpaid interest) is paid in full.  Each
lender will reconvey the overriding royalty interest (but not any
accrued payments owing to such lender) if on or before July 11,
2010, the facility fee reduction conditions discussed are
satisfied.

The financial covenants were removed from the Credit Agreement,
but the Company and RBC agreed that if the facility fee reduction
conditions discussed were satisfied on or before July 11, 2010,
they would negotiate in good faith to amend the Credit Agreement
to add financial covenants customary for similar credit agreements
of this type.

The Credit Agreement was amended so that the closing of the
proposed recombination among the Company, Quest Energy Partners,
L.P., and Quest Midstream Partners, L.P., would not be an event of
default under the Credit Agreement.

An additional event of default was added.  It is an event of
default under the Credit Agreement if by November 30, 2009, (i) a
joint proxy statement/prospectus with respect to the Recombination
is not filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, (ii) the
Recombination is not approved by the lenders under the credit
facilities for Quest Energy and Quest Midstream, and (iii) the
boards of directors of the Company, Quest Energy and Quest
Midstream have not approved the terms of any amendments,
restatements or new credit facilities to renew, rearrange or
replace their existing credit facilities.

The requirement to repay a portion of the term loan if RBC
determined the value of the collateral securing the Credit
Agreement was less than the amount of indebtedness outstanding
under the Credit Agreement was eliminated.

A $500,000 letter of credit facility was added to the Credit
Agreement.  Outstanding letters of credit will reduce the amount
available under the revolving credit facility.

The requirement to repay the amounts outstanding under the Credit
Agreement with the net proceeds from equity issuances was
eliminated.

BP Corporation North America and its affiliates were added as
approved hedge counterparties under the Credit Agreement.

In connection with the transactions contemplated by the
Recombination, a registration statement of New Quest Holdings
Corp., which will include a prospectus of New Quest and a joint
proxy statement of the Company and Quest Energy and other
materials, will be filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission.

The Troubled Company Reporter said August 21, 2009, QRCP estimated
it will not have enough cash to pay its expenses, including
capital expenditures and debt service requirements, after
September 15, 2009.  This date could be extended if QRCP is able
to restructure its debt obligations, issue equity securities or
sell additional assets.

Berenson & Company is acting as the financial advisor to each
Quest entity in restructuring their current debt obligations into
a form satisfactory for NewGasCo.

QUEST RESOURCE: Receives Nasdaq Non-Compliance Letter
-----------------------------------------------------
Quest Resource Corporation on September 15, 2009, received a
notice from the staff of The NASDAQ Stock Market, indicating that,
because the Company's stock has not maintained a minimum bid price
of $1 per share for the last 30 consecutive business days, a
deficiency exists under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(a)(1).

However, NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides the Company a
180 calendar day grace period to regain compliance.  The Company's
grace period will expire on March 15, 2010.  The Company will
automatically regain compliance with NASDAQ rules if, at any time
during this grace period the bid price for its shares closes at $1
or more per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days.
If the Company has not regained compliance by the end of this
grace period it will receive a written notification that its
securities are subject to delisting, a determination it can choose
to appeal to NASDAQ Hearing's Panel.

Alternatively, the Company may be granted an additional grace
period if it meets the initial listing standards of The Nasdaq
Capital Market, with the exception of bid price.  If the Company
uses this alternative, it will need to submit an application to
transfer its securities to The Nasdaq Capital Market.

RATHGIBSON INC: Gets Nod to Pay Work Fees for Potential Lenders
---------------------------------------------------------------
According to Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News, RathGibson Inc.
obtained approval from the Bankruptcy Court to pay up to $300,000
in expenses by potential lenders who may provide financing to exit
Chapter 11.  Although no loan commitments are yet in hand, the
company says it has received "several proposals."

Judge Christopher Sontchi in late August held that the disclosure
statement submitted by RathGibson contains adequate information
necessary for creditors to make an informed judgment on the
proposed reorganization plan.  Rathgibson has begun soliciting
votes on the Plan.  Ballots are due September 29.

The Court will begin hearings to consider confirmation of the Plan
on October 9.  Objections to confirmation are due September 29.

RathGibson negotiated the terms of its reorganization plan with
lenders prepetition.  Prior to filing, RathGibson and subsidiary
Greenville Tube Company entered into a Plan Support Agreement,
dated as of July 13, 2009, with holders of in excess of 73% of its
11.25% Senior Notes due 2014.

                         Terms of the Plan

Pursuant to the Plan, RathGibson's existing indebtedness in
respect of Senior Notes Claims in Class 4 -- estimated at
$209.2 million -- and Senior Note Guaranty Claims in Class 8 will
be cancelled and exchanged for New Common Stock in Reorganized
RathGibson, subject to dilution.  The Plan provides a 7% recovery
for Senior Notes Claims and Senior Note Guaranty Claims.

The New Common Stock will not be registered with the SEC or any
state securities regulatory authority and will not trade on any
exchange, or otherwise be publicly traded.  Reorganized RathGibson
will retain its Interests in Greenville.

Holders of Allowed Prepetition Secured Credit Agreement Claims,
estimated at $53.35 million, will be paid in full in cash.
Holders of Allowed General Unsecured Claim against RathGibson --
estimated at $13.1 million -- and Allowed General Unsecured Claim
against Greenville -- estimated at $2.0 million -- will receive
payment in full in Cash.

Holders of Existing Rath Securities Laws Claims in Class 6,
Existing Rath Interests in Class 7 and Existing Greenville
Securities Laws Claims in Class 10 get nothing.

The Debtors anticipate that the Plan Effective Date will occur
prior to November 10, 2009.

The Debtors intend to raise funds to satisfy certain payment
obligations under the Plan and the liquidity needs of the
Reorganized Debtors through the issuance, by Reorganized
RathGibson, of rights to acquire shares of New Common Stock
pursuant to the Rights Offering.  The Rights Offering is expected
to generate proceeds of up to $60 million.  The Debtors will enter
into agreements with certain consenting Noteholders to backstop
the Rights Offering and buy unsold shares.

The aggregate value of the New Common Stock is estimated at
$78.4 million based on the $105.0 million midpoint of the
estimated total enterprise value of the Reorganized Debtors, less
the estimated face amount of the Reorganized Debtors' net debt as
of the Effective Date of roughly $26.6 million.

The Debtors expect that an aggregate of 10,000,000 shares of New
Common Stock will be issued under the Plan.  Based on the
preceding estimate, immediately after the consummation of the
Plan, the ownership of Reorganized RathGibson will be:

                 Shares of
                 New Common Stock   Percent Ownership
                 ----------------   -----------------
   Class 4                               [___]%
                                         [___]%

   DIP Lenders                             7.5%
   Backstop Equity Investors            5% or 7.5%
                                       -----------
          Total                           100.0%

Debtor RGCH Holdings Corp., the parent company of RathGibson, and

the Plan.  The Plan will result in the deconsolidation of
RathGibson and Greenville from the RG Tube U.S. consolidated
group.

READER'S DIGEST: Cleared to Pay $25 Million to Vendors
------------------------------------------------------
The Reader's Digest Association, Inc. obtained final approval from
the Bankruptcy Court to pay as much as $25 million in prepetition
unsecured claims held by critical vendors.  The Debtors say the
proposed payments represent approximately 27% of prepetition trade
obligations.  A payment exceeding $350,000 to a critical vendor
requires approval by the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors.

The Debtors also obtained the Court's authority to pay up to
$8 million for prepetition claims of certain third parties, who
may be entitled to assert various lien claims against the Debtors
or their property or other assets if the Debtors fail to pay for
prepetition goods or services.

The Debtors' ability to retain and grow their customer base and
attract corresponding advertising dollars, according to James H.M.
Sprayregen P.C., Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York,
depends on the Debtors' ability to procure goods and services at
competitive prices and fulfill, produce and distribute their
products timely and accurately.  This, in turn, necessitates
carefully-choreographed, highly integrated stages of development,
production and delivery realized through a synchronization of the
numerous third-party suppliers, vendors and service providers
within the Debtors' global supply chain network.

Given the logistical challenges associated with creation,
distribution and customer services related to the Debtors'
products, especially in light of the increasingly global nature of
the Debtors' businesses, the Debtors also outsource to
unaffiliated third parties certain key business processes,
including printing and production, information technology,
customer-related services and distribution and delivery functions.

Accordingly, the Debtors sought Court's authority to pay, in their
sole discretion based on their business judgment, to a certain
class of third-party trade creditors "critical" to the Debtors'
ability to conduct their businesses and operations.

At the same hearing, Reader's Digest also obtained the Court's
approval to pay prepetition wages of employees.

SAMSONITE STORES: Can Access Sr. Facility Lenders' Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware authorized,
on an interim basis, Samsonite Company Stores LLC to:

   -- use cash collateral of senior facility lenders; and

   -- provide adequate protection to the senior facility lenders
      for any diminution in value of their interests in the

Courtroom 2 at this Court.  Objections were due Sept. 18, 2009.

The Debtor was party to a senior facility agreement dated as of

SANMINA-SCI CORP: Fitch Puts Stable Outlook; Has 'B' Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
In a special report issued, Fitch Ratings says the credit quality
of rated U.S. electronics manufacturing services issuers has
improved as companies allocated cash proceeds from recent reduced
working capital requirements toward debt reduction.  Fitch's
Outlook for the sector is now Stable versus a Negative Outlook at
the beginning of the year.  Fitch expects moderate revenue growth
over the intermediate term coupled with marginal improvement in
profitability to further stabilize and improve credit metrics.  In
addition, liquidity remains strong for the sector with minimal
near-term maturities.

Results for the sector through the first half of 2009 were
predictably dour due to the overall economic environment but
exhibited signs of stability that the sector has been missing over
the past several years.  Specifically, it appears competitors have
maintained rational behavior in regard to pricing, which when
combined with reduced overall capacity in the sector has enabled
EMS vendors to maintain margins at or above levels of early 2007
despite declines of more than 20% in revenue.

Fitch believes management teams appear to be taking a disciplined
approach to their respective balance sheets and expects only
modest share repurchases, if any, over the next year in preference
to preserving liquidity to support increased working capital
requirements once normalized revenue growth returns.

There are credit concerns however, with a focus on the potential
for pricing pressure to negatively affect profitability and cash
flow going forward.  While Fitch believes pricing has remained
healthy so far through the downturn, several EMS vendors have
commented on increasing price competition in the industry.  In
addition, further revenue declines could lead to additional
restructuring activity, negatively affecting cash flow for several
quarters.

Companies covered in the EMS report are:

* Celestica Inc. -- Rated 'BB-', Stable Outlook;
* Flextronics International Ltd. -- Rated 'BB+', Stable Outlook;
* Jabil Circuit, Inc. -- Rated 'BB+', Positive Outlook;
* Sanmina-SCI Corp. -- Rated 'B', Stable Outlook.


SARATOGA RESOURCES: Opposes Committee Plea to End Plan Exclusivity
------------------------------------------------------------------
Saratoga Resources Inc. filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court a
response to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors' motion
for an order terminating the Debtor's exclusive period to file a
plan and solicit acceptances, according to BankruptcyData.com.

The Debtor stated that "Hedge funds like Wayzata inject a new
dynamic into Chapter 11 cases these days.  They play by their own
rules and are accountable to no one but themselves.  Undisclosed
side deals and the heavy-handed litigation tactics the Court has
observed in this case are among their traditional methods of
operation."

                     About Saratoga Resources

Saratoga Resources Inc. (OTCBB: SROEQ) is an independent
exploration and production company with offices in Houston and
Covington.  Saratoga engages in the acquisition and development of
oil and gas producing properties that allow the Company to grow

SELECTIVE INSURANCE: S&P Assigns 'BB+' Preferred Stock Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its
preliminary 'BBB' senior unsecured debt, 'BBB-' subordinated debt,
and 'BB+' preferred stock ratings on Selective Insurance Group
Inc.'s universal shelf registration filed with the SEC on June 18,
2009.  This shelf replaces an existing universal shelf
registration filed in September 2006.

The ratings reflect Selective's strong competitive position in its
core Mid-Atlantic market, well-developed predictive modeling
capabilities, and strong financial flexibility.  Partially
mitigating some of these strengths are the company's relatively
weak operating performance in recent years, a significant decline
in capital adequacy as per Standard & Poor's capital adequacy
model, the continuing challenges in personal lines, and the
geographic concentration in the Mid-Atlantic region.  The
company's pretax earnings in the first half of 2009 were a loss of
$8.3 million, compared with a pretax profit of $62.7 million
during the same period in 2008.  The GAAP combined ratio was 99.6%
in the first half of 2009, while the return on revenue was very
modest at 3.6%.

Selective's financial leverage remains conservative and its
liquidity remains strong.  As of June 30, 2009, the company's
financial leverage was conservative at about 23.8%, compared with
24.5% at year-end 2008.  Also, Selective's GAAP fixed-charge
coverage was 3.5x, compared with 5.0x at year-end 2008.

SIRIUS XM: Receives Nasdaq Non-Compliance Notice
------------------------------------------------
SIRIUS XM Radio Inc., on September 15, 2009, received a letter
from The Nasdaq Stock Market indicating that the bid price of its
common stock for the last 30 consecutive business days had closed
below the minimum $1.00 per share required for continued listing
under Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5450(a)(1).  The notification was
expected, given the reinstitution of such Nasdaq Marketplace Rule
on August 3, 2009, and has no effect on the listing of our common
stock at this time.

Nasdaq stated in its letter that, in accordance with Marketplace
Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), SIRIUS XM has been provided an initial period
of 180 calendar days, or until March 15, 2010, to regain
compliance with the minimum bid requirement.  The letter also
states that if at any time before March 15, 2010, the bid price of
SIRIUS XM's common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a
minimum of 10 consecutive business days, the Nasdaq staff will
provide written notification that SIRIUS XM has achieved
compliance with the minimum bid requirement.

SIRIUS XM intends to maintain the listing of its common stock on
Nasdaq, and SIRIUS XM will consider available options if its
common stock does not trade at a level likely to result in
compliance with Nasdaq's minimum bid price requirement by
March 15, 2010.  In May 2009, SIRIUS XM's stockholders approved an
amendment to its certificate of incorporation to effect a reverse
stock split at a ratio of not less than one-for-ten and not more
than one-for-fifty.  SIRIUS XM's board of directors has authority
to select an exchange ratio within the approved range at any time
prior to June 30, 2010.  SIRIUS XM's board of directors intends to
effect the reverse stock split only if it determines the reverse
split to be in the best interests of our stockholders.  Such a
reverse split would put SIRIUS XM in compliance with the Nasdaq
bid price requirement.

SMURFIT-STONE: Closes Ontonagon, Michigan Plant
-----------------------------------------------
The Smurfit-Stone plant in Ontonagon, Michigan, shut down Tuesday
night due to market conditions, reports Ashley Palumbo of
UpperMichigansSource.com.

The report says the shutdown is sad news for the nearly 200
employees who live in Ontonagon and the surrounding areas, and
that it's still unclear how many employees were directly affected
by the layoffs or how long the shutdown will last.

This is the second time in less than a year that the major
Ontonagon business is idling its machinery, notes the report.

SONIC AUTOMOTIVE: Moody's Affirms 'Caa1' Corp. Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the Caa1 Corporate Family and
Probability of Default ratings of Sonic Automotive, Inc., and
changed the outlook to positive from negative.

The change in outlook to positive reflects the improvement in
liquidity resulting from Sonic's issuance of $150 million in
unrated convertible debt and raising of $90 million in equity.
These proceeds are intended to redeem the approximately
$160 million 4.25% convertible notes, which can be put to the
company as early as November 2010, and the approximately
$87 million 6.00% convertible notes.  "While these two offerings
go a long way towards alleviating Sonic's chronic short-term
liquidity issues, the renewal of the bank revolving credit
facility remains a key open item," stated Moody's Senior Analyst
Charlie O'Shea.  "In the event the bank facility is renewed under
terms that Moody's feel will provide Sonic with sufficient
liquidity over the medium term, upward rating pressure would
generate, with potential for a one or two notch upgrade".

Ratings affirmed and LGD point estimates updated include:

* Corporate Family Rating at Caa1

* Probability of Default Rating at Caa1

* Senior secured convertible notes at Caa2 (LGD 5, 73%)

* Senior guaranteed subordinated notes at Caa3 (LGD5, 84%) from
  Caa3 (LGD 5, 85%), and

* Senior convertible subordinated notes at Caa3 (LGD 6, 95%).

The most recent rating action for Sonic was the May 21, 2009,
downgrade of the Corporate Family Rating to Caa1 and the upgrade
of the probability of default rating to Caa1, with a negative
outlook assigned.

Sonic Automotive, Inc., headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina
is a leading auto retailer with 122 franchises, and generates
annual revenues of around $6 billion.


SOURCE INTERLINK: Settles With Bauer Over Alleged Pricing Fixing
----------------------------------------------------------------
Source Interlink Distribution LLC has settled with Bauer
Publishing Co. LP, bringing to a close a suit Source brought
against a raft of competitors and magazine publishers for
allegedly conspiring to fix prices and squeeze Source out of the
retail magazine market, according to Law360.

http://www.sourceinterlink.com/-- is a U.S. distributor of home

Gross presides over the case.  David Eaton, Esq., and David Agay,
Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP; and Laura Davis Jones, Esq., Mark

Ziehl Young Jones in Wilmington, Delaware, serve as bankruptcy

claims and notice agent.  As of April 24, 2009, the Debtors had
$2,436,005,000 in total assets and $1,995,504,000 in total debts.


SPANSION INC: Court Approves Rejection of Apple Contract
--------------------------------------------------------
Judge Kevin Carey authorized Spansion Inc. and its affiliates to
reject their executory contract with Apple Inc.  Judge Carey also
overruled the objection raised by Apple.  The Judge directed
Apple to file claims for damages arising as a result of the
rejection of the Agreement within 30 days after the entry of the
Court's order.

Spansion Inc. entered into a Letter Agreement with Apple Inc.,
pursuant to which Spansion agreed to dismiss Apple from a
complaint it filed with the International Trade Commission.
However, in a motion filed with the Court, the Debtors sought to
reject the Letter Agreement asserting that Spansion's relationship
with Apple is not sufficiently profitable to justify dismissal in
the ITC Action.

In response, Apple Inc., told the Court that although Spansion's
goal of licensing its patent portfolio to other memory
manufacturers is legitimate and proper, it is senseless to pursue
that goal in a way that destroys valuable customer relationships
and creates barriers to Spansion's participation in lucrative
component supply chain.  According to Apple, the patent
infringement dispute is solely between Samsung Electronics Co.,
Ltd., and Spansion and has nothing to do with itself.

Apple asserted that because rejection of the Letter Agreement is
based upon a faulty legal premise and confers no benefit on the
estate, the Court should deny the request and prevent the Debtors
from "shooting themselves in the foot."

In response, Michael R. Lastowski, Esq., at Duane Morris, LLP, in
Wilmington, Delaware, counsel for the Debtors, asked the Court
to overrule Apple's objection.  According to Mr. Lastowski, Apple
incorrectly argued that dismissing itself from the International
Trade Commission Action will not disadvantage Spansion, and Apple
overstates the advantages conferred upon Spansion through
Spansion's business relationship with Apple.

In November 2008, the Debtors filed a patent infringement
complaint against Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., with the ITC
seeking the exclusion from the United States market of more than
one hundred million mp3 players, cell phones, digital cameras and
other consumer electronic devices containing Samsung's flash
memory components.  In the ITC Action, the Debtors named
downstream users of Samsung's infringing devices, including
Apple.

Apple previously agreed that Spansion will remain its primary
supplier, in exchange for the dismissal of the ITC Action against
it.  However, the Debtors have determined that the Agreement is
no longer in the best interest of their estates and should be
rejected arguing that their business relationship with Apple is
not sufficiently profitable to justify dismissal of the ITC
Action.

SPANSION INC: Court OKs Brincko & Thoroddsen as CRO Consultants
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court authorized Spansion Inc. and its affiliates
to amend the retention of Brincko Associates, Inc., in order to
designate John Brincko and Thora Thoroddsen as chief restructuring
consultants.

Spansion Inc. previously obtained the Court's permission to employ
John P. Brincko as Chief Restructuring Officer.   As CRO, Mr.
Brincko was authorized to oversee negotiations with Spansion's
creditors, including debt-holders, to restructure the company's
approximately $1.5 billion in secured and unsecured debt.

Ernst & Young LLP, the Debtors' independent auditors, informed the
Debtors and Brincko Associates that under applicable accounting
rules, it could not issue an auditor report while Mr. Brincko or
Ms. Thoroddsen, serves as officers of the Debtors due to Ernst &
Young's pre-existing client relationship with Brincko Associates.

As a result, the Debtors note, it became necessary for Mr.
Brincko to relinquish his chief restructuring officer title and,
similarly, Ms. Thoroddsen was required to resign as the Debtors'
interim chief financial officer.

The Debtors relate that the designation of Mr. Brincko and Ms.
Thoroddsen as Chief Restructuring Consultants does not materially
change their duties and responsibilities or the services that
they and Brincko Associates will provide to the Debtors.
According to the Debtors, Mr. Brincko will continue to oversee
negotiations with creditors, including debt-holders, assist with
the restructuring of the Debtors' secured and unsecured debt and
help the Debtors formulate and negotiate a plan of
reorganization.

SPANSION INC: Proposes to Assume Contract With LRN Corporation
--------------------------------------------------------------
LRN Corporation and Spansion LLC are parties to that certain
Knowledge Service Provider Agreement whereby LRN provides
propriety, web-based knowledge applications used for an on-line
legal, ethics and compliance educational system consisting of an
interactive library of training modules designed to educate
Spansion employees in various areas of law and ethics, consistent
with Spansion's code of conduct and corporate policies.  The LRN
Contract provides for two payments of $28,435 each by Spansion
for the use of LRN's products through December 2, 2009.  The
Debtors relate that they have made no postpetition payments under
the LRN Contract but have continued to enjoy access to the
training modules and applications used to train Spansion's
employees.

Michael R. Lastowski, Esq., at Duane Morris, LLP, in Wilmington,
Delaware, tells the Court that due to the economic circumstances
that led to the filing of the Chapter 11 Cases, the second
payment, which Spansion still needs to make, no longer reflects
the value of the LRN Contract to Spansion.

Spansion and LRN entered into good faith negotiations to
negotiate a cure amount that would bring the remaining payment
due under the LRN Contract into closer conformity with its true
value to Spansion.  As a result, LRN and Spansion entered
into that certain Second Amendment to Knowledge Service Provider
Agreement.  Pursuant to the Amendment, the Second Payment is to
be canceled in favor of a reduced payment by Spansion of $21,326,
and an allowed prepetition general unsecured claim for the
remaining $7,109.  These payments represent the Second Payment
divided on a pro-rata basis between pre- and post-petition
periods, even though under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code,
LRN would technically be entitled to a cure payment of the
full amount.

Pursuant to Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Debtors seek
the Court's authority to assume the LRN Contract, as amended.

STANDARD PACIFIC: Issues $280-Mil. of 10.750% Sr. Notes Due 2016
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard Pacific Escrow LLC, a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of
Standard Pacific Corp., on September 17, 2009, issued $280 million
aggregate principal amount of its 10.750% senior notes due 2016
governed by the indenture, dated as of September 17, 2009, between
Escrow LLC and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A.

Under certain conditions, the Company will assume Escrow LLC's
obligations under the Notes and the Indenture.  If those
conditions are not met on or prior to October 16, 2009 -- or such
earlier date as the Company determines in its sole discretion that
the escrow conditions cannot be satisfied -- the Notes will be
automatically redeemed at a price in cash equal to 101% of the
aggregate initial offering price of the Notes -- after giving
effect to original issue discount -- plus accrued and unpaid
interest to, but not including, the date of redemption.

The Notes bear interest at a rate of 10.750% per year and will
mature on September 15, 2016.  Interest will accrue on the Notes
from September 17, 2009, and will be payable semi-annually on each
March 15 and September 15, commencing March 15, 2010.  Other than
the covenants requiring the Company to consummate the Company
Assumption, the covenant and default terms of the Notes are
substantially the same as those associated with the Company's
other senior notes.

Upon the Company Assumption, the Notes will be general senior
obligations of the Company, will be unconditionally, jointly and
severally guaranteed, on a senior basis by the subsidiaries of the
Company that guarantee the Company's outstanding senior notes and
subordinated notes and will be secured by a pledge of the stock of
certain subsidiaries of the Company that secure the Company's
outstanding senior notes.  The Notes and related guarantees will
rank equally in right of payment with all of the Company's and the
guarantors' other indebtedness -- except for current and future
obligations that may be subordinated to the Notes.

The Company will have no access to the proceeds of the offering
until it assumes, as primary obligor, the obligations of Escrow
LLC under the Notes.  Upon the Company Assumption, the Company
intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, or
approximately $250.6 million to purchase, redeem or retire
existing debt of the Company (and to pay related expenses),
including up to $76 million of inter-company liabilities to
unrestricted subsidiaries.  The Company intends to use up to
$175 million of the offering proceeds to purchase through tender
offers (and to pay related expenses), first, the Company's 6-1/2%
Senior Notes due 2010, then, to the extent any amounts remain, the
Company's 6-7/8% Senior Notes due 2011 and finally, to the extent
any amounts remain, up to $50 million principal amount of the
Company's 7-3/4% Senior Notes due 2013 (although the Company
reserves the right to increase the amount of notes it is offering
to purchase in the tender offers).

Upon the Company Assumption, the Company and the subsidiary
guarantors will enter into a registration rights agreement with
the initial purchasers of the Notes, pursuant to which the Company
and the guarantors will be obligated to effect an exchange for the
Notes for registered securities having substantially identical
terms to the Notes or, in the alternative, register the Notes
under the Securities Act, subject to the terms and conditions
therein specified.


SUN-TIMES MEDIA: PBGC Says Sale Should Account for Pension Plans
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. has taken issue with the
bidding procedures for Sun-Times Media Group Inc.'s proposed
$5 million Chapter 11 asset sale, saying they do not take into
account that a prospective bidder may wish to assume one or more
of the seven defined benefit pension plans sponsored by the
company, according to Law360.

As reported by the TCR on September 10, 2009, Sun-Times Media
Group Inc. filed with the Bankruptcy Court motions seeking
approval of the sale of its business to James C. Tyree-led
STMG Holdings LLC, absent higher and better bids at an auction on
October 7.

Sun-Times Media Group has entered into a "stalking horse" asset
purchase agreement with STMG Holdings, LLC, a private investor
group led by Chicago businessman James C. Tyree, for substantially
all assets of Sun-Times Media Group.  The buyer will acquire
substantially all assets of the Company for $5 million in cash,
subject to a working capital adjustment, and will assume certain
liabilities of Sun-Times Media Group estimated to total
approximately $20 million.

The Company said that Rothschild Inc. conducted extensive
marketing efforts for its assets or business but only James
C. Tyree-led STMG Holdings LLC submitted an offer to purchase
assets on a going concern basis.

The Company proposes an October 7 auction, and an October 8 sale
hearing.  The Bankruptcy Court will consider approval of the
proposed auction procedures on September 24.

SUNESIS PHARMACEUTICALS: Receives NASDAQ Non-Compliance Letter
--------------------------------------------------------------
Sunesis Pharmaceuticals, Inc., received a letter, dated September
16, 2009, from the Listing Qualifications Staff of The NASDAQ
Stock Market notifying Sunesis that it does not comply with the
minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on The
NASDAQ Capital Market set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).
The notice further provides that, pursuant to Listing Rule
5810(c)(3)(A), if, at any time before March 15, 2010, the bid
price for Sunesis' common stock closes at $1.00 or more for the
minimum 10 consecutive business days required, the Staff will
provide written confirmation to Sunesis that it complies with
Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), unless the Staff exercises its discretion
to extend this 10 day period pursuant to Listing Rule
5810(c)(3)(F).

The NASDAQ notice does not impact Sunesis' listing on The NASDAQ
Capital Market at this time and Sunesis will continue to trade
under the symbol "SNSS."

If Sunesis does not demonstrate compliance with Listing Rule
5550(a)(2) by March 15, 2010, the Staff will determine whether
Sunesis meets The NASDAQ Capital Market initial listing criteria
set forth in Listing Rule 5505, except for the $1.00 per share bid
price requirement.  If Sunesis meets the initial listing criteria,
the Staff will notify Sunesis that it has been granted an
additional 180 calendar day compliance period. If Sunesis is not
eligible for an additional compliance period, the Staff will
notify Sunesis that its common stock will be delisted. At that
time, Sunesis may appeal to the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications
Panel, and Sunesis would remain listed pending the Panel's
decision.  Sunesis cannot provide any assurance that the Panel
will allow Sunesis to remain listed in the event of any appeal.

On July 24, 2009, Sunesis submitted to the Listing Qualifications
Department of the Nasdaq an application to transfer the listing of
its common stock from NASDAQ.  On July 29, the Company received
notice from NASDAQ that its application to transfer listing of its
common stock had been approved.  The transfer became effective at
the opening of the market on August 3.  Sunesis continued trading
under the symbol "SNSS."

                           Going Concern

The Company related that the recurring operating losses raise
substantial doubt as to its ability to continue as a going
concern.  The Company incurred significant losses and negative
cash flows from operations since its inception.  As of June 30,
2009, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $347.4 million.

The Company said it needs to raise substantial additional funds to
continue operations, fund additional clinical trials of voreloxin
and bring future products to market.  Management plans to finance
the Company's operations with equity issuances, including the
initial closing and potential additional closings of the sale of
units and common stock, debt arrangements, a possible partnership
or license of development or commercialization rights to voreloxin
and, in the long term, product sales and royalties.

TAMALPAIS BANK: Consents to Cease & Desist Order from FDIC
----------------------------------------------------------
To strengthen and improve its financial condition and operations
consistent with best practices of safe and sound institutions,
Tamalpais Bank has entered into an agreement to consent to the
issuance of an Order to Cease and Desist with the FDIC and the
California Department of Financial Institutions.  This order
requires the Bank to develop and implement action plans to address
items identified during the Bank's routine regulatory examination
completed in May 2009; the actions we will take pursuant to the
order will generally be consistent with strategic initiatives
already in process by the Board of Directors and management.

This order does not affect the security of customer deposits.  The
customers' deposits with the Company are fully insured to the
highest limits set by the FDIC.  The term "Cease and Desist" does
not mean that the Bank stops its normal banking operations.

"Today's current economic conditions and the resulting regulatory
scrutiny are creating challenges for financial institutions of all
sizes and Tamalpais Bank is no exception.  We continue to stand by
our borrowers and our depositors as they have been impacted by
declining retail sales, declining real estate values and this
current economic storm," said Mark Garwood, the Bank's Chairman
and CEO, in a Sept. 21 statement.  "We are committed to working
with the FDIC and the DFI to implement the actions required by the
order."

The Bank will fully comply with the order's terms and has already
made progress to expeditiously and diligently correct the issues
outlined in the order. Ongoing strategic initiatives to strengthen
the Bank's financial position, reduce credit and funding risk,
increase core deposits and lower the cost of funds are in process
or have been completed.

The Bank is in the process of diversifying its loan portfolio,
reducing concentrations in commercial real estate and multifamily
loans as well as reducing nonperforming and substandard assets.

The Bank has eliminated its wholesale, commercial and multi-family
lending through mortgage brokers as well as the elimination of SBA
lending outside its Bay Area footprint -- all completed in the
first quarter 2009.

A business strategy has been adopted focusing on business owners
and individuals residing in the Company's market area and
providing them with financial services and advice while
incorporating a relationship-based approach to customer service.
The Bank has also focused its sales efforts through the Company's
Marin County-based team of business banking professionals on
building the balances of more profitable, noninterest bearing and
lower cost transaction accounts from within the Company's market
area to reduce cost of funds and dependence on brokered deposits.

In February 2008, the Bank hired Jamie Williams, who has more than
20 years of experience working in the Marin County banking
industry, as Executive Vice President (now the President of the
Bank) to lead the Bank's retail and commercial banking.

The Bank also added experience and depth to the Bank's credit
administration team.  In October of 2008, management hired Larry
Cretan as Chief Credit Officer. Mr. Cretan has extensive in-market
commercial lending experience.  Additional managers were added, in
the first quarter, with specific experience in portfolio
management and loan administration.

Karry Bryan, the Senior Vice President and Chief Accounting
Officer of the Company, has been appointed the acting Chief
Financial Officer and will assume these responsibilities on an
interim basis. Ms. Bryan joined the Bank in August 2005 as Vice
President of Finance, Controller. She was promoted to First Vice
President, Controller in January, 2006, and to the position of
Senior Vice President, Chief Accounting Officer and Controller in
January, 2007. Prior to joining the Bank, Ms. Bryan served as
Controller for Bank of Marin from November, 2004 to August, 2005.
Ms. Bryan is a CPA, obtained her Masters of Business
Administration in Finance from the University of Chicago, and has
over twelve years of experience in financial services, plus five
years as Senior Auditor with Price Waterhouse, LLP, focusing on
financial services clients.

The Company believes that all of these efforts enable the Bank to
continue to be proactive in monitoring credit quality now and in
the future.

"Tamalpais Bank is recognized by individuals and non-profit, as
well as for-profit businesses for our commitment and leadership,"
said Garwood. "We appreciate the support of these stakeholders as
we work to serve and revitalize our local economy and remain
engaged and committed to actions which will strengthen our
Company. Because of them, we maintain a strong presence in the
market with customers who are advocates and want to do business
with us."

TELKONET INC: Gets $300,000 Loan From Wisconsin Commerce Dept.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Telkonet, Inc., on September 11, 2009, entered into a Loan
Agreement in the aggregate principal amount of $300,000 with the
Wisconsin Department of Commerce.

The outstanding principal balance bears interest at the annual
rate of 2%. Payment of interest and principal is to be made in
this manner:

     (a) payment of any and all interest that accrues from the
         date of disbursement commences on January 1, 2010 and
         continues on the first day of each consecutive month
         thereafter through and including December 31, 2010;

     (b) commencing on January 1, 2011 and continuing on the first
         day of each consecutive month thereafter through and
         including November 1, 2016, the Company shall pay equal
         monthly installments of $4,426 each; followed by a final
         installment on December 1, 2016 which shall include all
         remaining principal, accrued interest and other amounts
         owed by the Company to the Department under the Loan
         Agreement.

The Company is obligated under the Loan Agreement to create and
fill 35 new full-time positions with an average wage of $18 per
hour in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, by December 31, 2012, and,
thereafter maintain each such position until December 31, 2014.
Failure to satisfy this covenant results in an incremental
increase in the interest rate for each new full-time position not
kept, created, or maintained; capped at 4%.

If an event of default under the Loan Agreement occurs, and
subject to an Intercreditor Agreement between the Company, the
Department, Thermo Credit, LLC and YA Global Investments, L.P.,
the Department may, among other things, declare the principal
amount of all obligations under the Loan Agreement immediately due
and payable.  Events of default under the Loan Agreement include
failure to pay interest or principal on the borrowings thereunder,
failure to comply with certain covenants or agreements contained
therein, and other events of default customary for financings of
this type, subject to, as the case may be, applicable cure
periods.   The Company may prepay amounts outstanding under the
credit facility in whole or in part at any time without penalty.
The credit facility is secured by the Company's assets pursuant to
a General Business Security Agreement.  The proceeds from this
loan will be used for the working capital requirements of the
Company.

As of June 30, 2009, the Company had $18.5 million in total assets
and $5,632,036 in total current liabilities and $2,257,539 in
total long-term liabilities.

The Company has an accumulated deficit of $108.4 million and a
working capital deficit of $3.19 million as of June 30, 2009.

The Company believes that anticipated revenues from operations
will be insufficient to satisfy its ongoing capital requirements
for at least the next 12 months.  If the Company's financial
resources from operations are insufficient, the Company will
require additional financing to execute its operating plan and
continue as a going concern.  The Company cannot predict whether
this additional financing will be in the form of equity or debt,
or be in another form.  The Company may not be able to obtain the
necessary additional capital on a timely basis, on acceptable
terms, or at all.  In any of these events, the Company may be
unable to implement its current plans for expansion, repay its
debt obligations as they become due, or respond to competitive
pressures, any of which circumstances would have a material
adverse effect on its business, prospects, financial condition and
results of operations.

Management intends to raise capital through asset-based financing
or the sale of its stock in private placements.  Management
believes that with this financing, the Company will be able to
generate additional revenues that will allow the Company to
continue as a going concern.  There can be no assurance that the
Company will be successful in obtaining additional funding.

THELEN LLP: Files for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Protection
-----------------------------------------------------
The Recorder reports that Thelen LLP has filed for Chapter 7
protection, after its partnership agreed to dissolve the Company.
According to The Recorder, the filing was expected due to the
timing of a writ of attachment filed by one of Thelen's landlords,
entitling the landlord to $25 million of the Company's assets.
The Recorder says that the landlord won approval for that writ in
June 2009, but Thelen could void the writ by filing for bankruptcy
within 90 days of that court ruling.  Thelen, according to AM Law
Daily, has repaid most of its debt to its lending banks.

Thelen LLP, formerly known as Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner
-- http://thelen.com/-- is a bicoastal American law firm in
process of dissolution.  It was formed as a product between two
mergers between California and New York-based law firms, mostly

TRONOX INC: Plan Exclusivity Extended to Dec. 15, Not March 31
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court extended until Dec. 15, 2009, Tronox Inc.
exclusive period to file a Chapter 11 plan.  Tronox originally
requested for a March 31, 2010 extension of its plan filing
deadline.  However, it agreed to shorten its request for an
extension at the Sept. 15 hearing amidst objections by some
parties.

The Court said that the order approving the extension is without
prejudice to Tronox's ability to seek further extensions or of any
party to move to reduce or terminate exclusivity.

Tronox has told the Court that while it is preparing to conduct an
auction where Huntsman Corp. will be lead bidder for its assets,
it has also held preliminary discussions with stakeholders over
the terms of a standalone reorganization plan.  However,
discussions on a standalone plan are their infancy due to the many
unresolved contingencies in the Debtors' cases.

The official committee of equity holders opposed the request for a
March 31 extension.  Termination of the exclusive period will
allow the equity committee and other parties to file a Chapter 11
plan for the Debtors.

UAL CORP: $2.6BB Cash in Q3; More Liquidity Initiatives Underway
----------------------------------------------------------------
UAL Corporation, the holding company whose primary subsidiary is
United Air Lines, Inc., on September 16, 2009, provided an
investor update related to its financial and operational outlook
for the third quarter of 2009.

The Company expects to end the third quarter with an unrestricted
cash balance of approximately $2.6 billion.  This includes roughly
$300 million from financings, asset sales and other liquidity
initiatives completed or likely to be completed during the
quarter, including $155 million from the spare parts financing
that closed early in the third quarter.  The company expects to
end the third quarter with a restricted cash balance of
approximately $300 million and fuel hedge collateral posted with
counterparties of $60 million.

In addition, the Company has other liquidity initiatives underway
that it expects to complete in the fourth quarter.

The Company expects to be in full compliance with its credit
facility covenants in the third quarter.  The company believes
that excluding fuel hedge expenses from non-operating expense is
useful to investors because it more clearly depicts the
performance of other non-operating revenue and expense items.

The Company also said third quarter 2009 consolidated available
seat miles (ASMs) are estimated to be down 5.9% year-over-year, in
line with prior guidance.  Third quarter 2009 consolidated revenue
passenger miles (RPMs) are estimated to be down 3.0% to 4.0% year-
over-year.

The Company estimates consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM)
to be down 15.8% to 16.8% year-over-year for the third quarter,
and mainline PRASM to be down 17.8% to 18.8% year-over-year.

The Company estimates third quarter 2009 mainline non-fuel unit
cost per ASM (CASM), excluding profit sharing and certain
accounting charges, to be down 0.5% to 1.0% year-over-year, and
consolidated non-fuel CASM, excluding profit sharing and certain
accounting charges, to be flat to down 0.5% year-over-year.  Both
mainline and consolidated non-fuel unit costs have improved from
the company's prior guidance.

The Company estimates mainline fuel price, including the impact of
cash settled hedges, to be $2.13 per gallon for the third quarter.
The Company has previously posted cash collateral with its fuel
hedge counterparties that will be used to cover hedge losses as
contracts settle.

A portion of the Company's total fuel hedge gains and losses are
classified as non-operating expense, with the remaining classified
as operating fuel expense.  Based on Sept. 11, 2009, closing
forward prices, the company expects to recognize $39 million of
cash losses on settled hedge contracts reported in non-operating
expense in the third quarter.  Excluding hedge impacts, non-
operating expense is estimated to be $130 million to $140 million
for the third quarter.

Because of its net operating loss carry-forwards, the Company
expects to pay minimal cash taxes for the foreseeable future and
is not recording incremental tax benefits at this time. The
company expects an effective tax rate of 0% for the third quarter
of 2009.

As reported by the TCR on June 12, 2009, Fitch Ratings has
downgraded the issuer debt rating to 'CCC' from 'B-' for UAL Corp.
and its principal operating subsidiary United Airlines, Inc.
The downgrade reflects Fitch's view that the airline's credit
profile is likely to weaken further, as extreme pressure in the
revenue environment continues to undermine the positive cash flow
impact of lower jet fuel prices in 2009.

UBS AG: Warns US Clients of Accounts Disclosure to Tax Authorities
------------------------------------------------------------------
Kim Dixon at Reuters reports that UBS AG has warned its U.S.
clients that their secret Swiss accounts may be revealed to US tax
authorities after next Wednesday's expiration of an amnesty
program.

According to a letter from UBS obtained by Reuters, the Company
told the clients that their accounts fall under a deal signed in
August that ended a dispute with the U.S. government over off-
shore assets of U.S. clients.  Reuters states that the clients
will decide whether to participate in the U.S. Internal Revenue
Service's amnesty program that reveals income in tax havens like
Switzerland, Cayman Islands, and Monaco.

Reuters says that in exchange for coming clean by the September 23
deadline, individuals pay back taxes and a reduced fine, while
generally avoiding criminal charges.

Based in Zurich, Switzerland, UBS AG (VTX:UBSN) --
http://www.ubs.com/-- is a global provider of financial services
for wealthy clients.  UBS's financial businesses are organized on
a worldwide basis into three Business Groups and the Corporate
Center.  Global Wealth Management & Business Banking consists of
three segments: Wealth Management International & Switzerland,
Wealth Management US and Business Banking Switzerland.  The
Business Groups Investment Bank and Global Asset Management
constitute one segment each.  The Industrial Holdings segment
holds all industrial operations controlled by the Group.  Global
Asset Management provides investment products and services to
institutional investors and wholesale intermediaries around the
globe.  The Investment Bank operates globally as a client-driven
investment banking and securities firm.  The Industrial Holdings
segment comprises the non-financial businesses of UBS, including
the private equity business, which primarily invests UBS and
third-party funds in unlisted companies.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe, UBS has
amassed more than US$53 billion in writedowns and losses since the
credit crisis began.  The bank expects to post a loss in the
second quarter of 2009.  The bank's net loss for full-year 2008
widened to CHF19.697 billion from of CHF5.247 million in the prior
year.  Net losses from continuing operations totaled
CHF19.327 billion, compared with losses of CHF5.111 billion in the
prior year.  UBS attributed the losses to negative revenues in its
fixed income, currencies and commodities (FICC) area.  For the
2008 fourth quarter, UBS incurred a net loss of CHF8.100 billion,
down from a net profit of CHF296 million.  Net loss from
continuing operations was CHF7.997 billion compared with a profit
of CHF433 million.  The Investment Bank recorded a pre-tax loss of
CHF7.483 billion, compared with a pre-tax loss of CHF2.748 billion
in the prior quarter.  This result was primarily due to trading
losses, losses on exposures to monolines and impairment charges
taken against leveraged finance commitments.  An own credit charge
of CHF1.616 billion was recorded by the Investment Bank in fourth
quarter 2008, mainly due to redemptions and repurchases of UBS
debt during this period.

UBS said it will further reduce its headcount to 15,000 by the end
of the year.  UBS's personnel numbers reduced to 77,783 on
December 31, 2008, down by 1,782 from September 30, 2008, with
most staff reductions at its investment banking unit.


VERASUN ENERGY: To Present Liquidating Plan on October 23
---------------------------------------------------------
VeraSun Energy Corporation, its debtor affiliates obtained
approval from the Bankruptcy Court of the disclosure statement
explaining its Chapter 11 plan.  VeraSun Energy Corp. is
soliciting votes on a Chapter 11 plan in anticipation of a
confirmation hearing scheduled to begin Oct. 23.  Objections to
confirmation of the Plan are due October 16.

VeraSun Energy, its debtor affiliates, and the Official Committee
of Unsecured Creditors submitted to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware on July 31, 2009, a joint Chapter 11 plan
of liquidation and an accompanying disclosure statement.

The Plan provides for the distribution of substantially all of the
assets of the Debtors to various creditors and to subsequently
wind up the Debtors' corporate affairs.  Creditors are required to
return their ballots by October 16.

VeraSun expects to have as much as $138 million for distribution
under the Plan.  After taking out $24 million for administrative
costs and $5 million for priority claims, up to $99 million will
remain for distribution to unsecured creditors.

The sale of seven plants to Valero Energy Corp. by itself
generated $420 million, not including $18 million of accounts
receivable and $112 million in cash.  VeraSun proceeded to pay off
$301 million in claims held by lenders that financed the Chapter
11 case and had claims secured by the plants.  It later paid off
the remaining $107 million in claims secured by the plants Valero
bought.

The other nine VeraSun plants were sold to secured creditors in
exchange for debt. VeraSun's plants were theoretically capable of
producing 1.64 billion gallons of ethanol annually.

WESTMORELAND COAL: Amends Annual Report to Address SEC Concerns
---------------------------------------------------------------
Westmoreland Coal Company filed Amendment No. 2 to its Annual
Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008, in
response to certain comments made by the staff of the Securities
and Exchange Commission.

In response to such comments, Westmoreland Coal (i) amended Part
II, Item 9A (Controls and Procedures) to include an amended
subsection (a) and (ii) filed currently dated certifications of
our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer as
required under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.  No other change
has been made to the Form 10-K, and the Form 10-K/A does not
amend, update or change any other Item or the disclosures in the
Form 10-K in any way.  The Form 10-K/A does not reflect events
occurring after the filing of the Form 10-K or modify or update
those disclosures, including any exhibits to the Form 10-K
affected by subsequent events.

A full-text copy of the Amendment is available at no charge at:

              http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?4531

Westmoreland Coal Company (NYSE Amex:WLB) --
http://www.westmoreland.com/-- is the oldest independent coal
company in the United States.  The Company's coal operations
include coal mining in the Powder River Basin in Montana and
lignite mining operations in Montana, North Dakota and Texas.  Its
power operations include ownership of the two-unit ROVA coal-fired
power plant in North Carolina.

As of June 30, 2009, the Company had $793.36 billion in total
assets and $1.018 billion in total liabilities, resulting in
$221.74 million in Westmoreland Coal Company shareholders'
deficit.

                       Going Concern Opinion

The Company has suffered recurring losses from operations, has a
working capital deficit and a net capital deficiency that raise
substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as
a going concern.

The Company's lending arrangements contain, among other
conditions, events of default and various affirmative and negative
covenants.  As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on
August 11, 2009, the Company as of June 30 defaulted on a leverage
ratio covenant in its WML debt agreement as a result of customer
outages.  The leverage ratio is calculated using Earnings Before
Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization, or EBITDA, as
defined by the agreement, for the previous four quarters.  As a
result the Company believes it will not be able to meet the
leverage ratio measurement for at least the next three quarters.
The Company is currently in discussions with its lenders regarding
resolution but in the absence of a waiver, the Company has
classified $125.0 million of outstanding WML debt previously
classified as noncurrent to a current liability in the
Consolidated Balance Sheet.

The Company's belief that it will not be able to meet the WML
leverage ratio covenant for the next three quarters could also
potentially trigger future cross defaults on the Company's
convertible notes and WRI term debt.  As a result, the Company
also classified $11.0 million of its convertible note debt and
$3.2 million of its WRI term debt also formerly classified as
noncurrent to current liabilities.

As a result of the non-compliance, the Company's lenders may
require additional operating and financial restrictions, the
payment of additional fees, acceleration of the amortization
schedule, an increase in the interest rates charged, or a
foreclosure on the assets securing such indebtedness.
Specifically, until a resolution is reached, the lenders have
limited the Company's ability to access funds under WML's
$25.0 million revolving line of credit.  No funds were drawn under
this revolving line of credit at June 30, 2009.


WHITE ENERGY: Gets Shorter Exclusivity Extension
------------------------------------------------
White Energy Inc. sought a Dec. 3 extension of its exclusive
period to file a Chapter 11 plan.  It got an extension until
Oct. 15 after opposition from creditors, Bill Rochelle at
Bloomberg News said.

The official committee of unsecured creditors in White Energy
Inc.'s cases said that it has an agreement with lenders on a
consensual Chapter 11 plan.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, White Energy, Inc. --
http://www.white-energy.com/-- builds and acquires ethanol
production projects.  White Energy's plants have a combined
capacity of producing 240 million gallons of ethanol a year,
making it one of the 10 largest ethanol producers in the U.S. and
the second-largest gluten maker.  Two plants are in Texas with the
third in Kansas.  White spent $323 million building the plants in
Texas.

The Company and its debtor-affiliates filed for Chapter 11 on
May 7, 2009 (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 09-11601).  Michael R.
Lastowski, Esq., at Duane Morris LLP, represents the Debtors in
their restructuring efforts.  The Debtors tapped The Garden City
Group Inc. as claims agent.  On the petition date, the Debtors
disclosed assets and debts ranging from $100 million to
$500 million.

pricing set over the weekend for a Hong Kong listing of the
Company's Macau assets in October, Rick Carew and Jonathan Cheng
at The Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with

of the equity of Wynn Resorts' Macau operations, The Journal says,
citing the source.

According to The Journal, the source said that Wynn Resorts has
secured investments in the IPO from some Hong Kong tycoons, who
will invest a total of US$250 million.

The Journal says that J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley, and
UBS AG are advising Wynn Resorts on the IPO.

Wynn Resorts, The Journal states, hasn't said what it will use its
new funds for.

* Fitch Eyes Moderate Revenue Growth in Electronics Services Cos.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In a special report issued, Fitch Ratings says the credit quality
of rated U.S. electronics manufacturing services issuers has
improved as companies allocated cash proceeds from recent reduced
working capital requirements toward debt reduction.  Fitch's
Outlook for the sector is now Stable versus a Negative Outlook at
the beginning of the year.  Fitch expects moderate revenue growth
over the intermediate term coupled with marginal improvement in
profitability to further stabilize and improve credit metrics.  In
addition, liquidity remains strong for the sector with minimal
near-term maturities.

Results for the sector through the first half of 2009 were
predictably dour due to the overall economic environment but
exhibited signs of stability that the sector has been missing over
the past several years.  Specifically, it appears competitors have
maintained rational behavior in regard to pricing, which when
combined with reduced overall capacity in the sector has enabled
EMS vendors to maintain margins at or above levels of early 2007
despite declines of more than 20% in revenue.

Fitch believes management teams appear to be taking a disciplined
approach to their respective balance sheets and expects only
modest share repurchases, if any, over the next year in preference
to preserving liquidity to support increased working capital
requirements once normalized revenue growth returns.

There are credit concerns however, with a focus on the potential
for pricing pressure to negatively affect profitability and cash
flow going forward.  While Fitch believes pricing has remained
healthy so far through the downturn, several EMS vendors have
commented on increasing price competition in the industry.  In
addition, further revenue declines could lead to additional
restructuring activity, negatively affecting cash flow for several
quarters.

Companies covered in the EMS report are:

* Celestica Inc. -- Rated 'BB-', Stable Outlook;
* Flextronics International Ltd. -- Rated 'BB+', Stable Outlook;
* Jabil Circuit, Inc. -- Rated 'BB+', Positive Outlook;
* Sanmina-SCI Corp. -- Rated 'B', Stable Outlook.


* Jones Day Bills $9 Million for 2 Bankruptcy Cases
---------------------------------------------------
Jones Day has served as lead debtors' counsel to Boscov's Inc. and
special labor counsel to the Minneapolis Star Tribune in their
bankruptcy cases, billing almost $9 million in bankruptcy fees.
Boscov's has recently obtained approval of its liquidating plan.
Star Tribune has recently obtained approval of a reorganization
plan.

Jones Day labor and employment partner Robert Ford in San
Francisco worked closely with Star Tribune general counsel Randy
Lebedoff to renegotiate union contracts, AM Law states, citing
lawyers familiar with the matter.


* Joseph R. Manning Offers Debt Settlement Alternative
------------------------------------------------------
Business Week reports that apprentice star and business mogul
Donald Trump is overextended and in financial trouble again -- and
once again "the Donald is scrambling to renegotiate the loans and
shore up his wobbly empire." Business Week, August 2008.  Trump
may be able to renegotiate (as he has in the past) because the
banks and other creditors think they can cut better deals outside
of bankruptcy court than inside bankruptcy court.

"Regular folks may not know it, but they have some of the same
options as 'the Donald' when they get in over their heads with
unsecured debt such as credit cards and medical bills," says
Joseph R. Manning, Jr., Esq., General Counsel for Next Move 123, a
Newport Beach, California debt settlement company.

Next Move 123 provides consumers with the assistance of
experienced non-attorney negotiators.  "Our objective is to settle
consumer debt for less than the amount owed and place the consumer
on a path to financial independence," said Sean Reynolds,
President of Next Move 123.

Debt settlement is a proven bankruptcy alternative.  "Creditors
have strong incentives to work with Next Move 123 to resolve
consumer debts. In bankruptcy, creditors often wait only to
recover less than the amounts they can obtain by settling credit
card debt and other debt. Debt settlement also helps creditors
avoid the cost of collection agencies and collection attorneys --
I know this because our processing department has settled debts
with virtually all major credit card companies," says Manning.

Increases in minimum payments required by credit card companies
are also driving consumers to debt settlement as a bankruptcy
alternative. "We are getting calls every day from consumers pushed
over the edge by increased minimum payments on their credit cards.
MBNA, CitiBank and Bank of America have already announced they
will double their minimum monthly payments to 4% of the
outstanding balance rather than the existing 2%," said Reynolds.

Sean Reynolds has worked in the consumer finance field for over 18
years. As President of Next Move 123, he is now assisting
consumers to restructure their personal finances with debt
settlement.

Joseph R. Manning, Jr., is a civil justice attorney that practices
in the state and federal courts of California representing
consumers against insurance companies and large corporations.
Manning is the CEO and General counsel of Next Move 123.

Based in Newport Beach, Calif., Next Move 123, Inc.,
(http://NextMove123.com)is a debt settlement firm dedicated to
assisting consumers to reduce unsecured debt and become
financially independent.

                           *********

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers'
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com/

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
includes links to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

The Sunday TCR delivers securitization rating news from the week
then-ending.

For copies of court documents filed in the District of Delaware,
please contact Vito at Parcels, Inc., at 302-658-9911.  For
bankruptcy documents filed in cases pending outside the District
of Delaware, contact Ken Troubh at Nationwide Research &
Consulting at 207/791-2852.
